Performing in Prague 2017

As always, we had a great time at Prague Swing Spring Festival. This year, we were fortunate enough to get to perform with Ondrej Havelka and his Melody Makers to “What’cha Know Joe.” Check out our performance! The day before this performance, we did some light choreography so we knew what we were going to do in some of the […]

The Process

Once upon a time, there was a shortage of Lindy Hop information – a few precious movie clips were sometimes all that Lindy Hoppers had to learn from. But as time passed and more information became available, the biggest challenge became that of processing the current abundance of knowledge. To help modern Lindy Hoppers meet […]

Havin’ a Good Time!

Let’s start with why I had the BEST time at Lindy Focus this year. Yes, the music was out-of-this world amazing (I’m not exaggerating – it was ridiculous!), many of my friends were there, I had some awesome dances, I taught some sweet classes, and I got to perform along side some amazing ladies, but really, […]

April Artist – Day 29 – Zak Timan

I make floating sculpture. Using buoyant materials such as cork, hollow metal forms, and birds’ eggshells, I create compositions that float in clear, oil-filled glass vessels.
