Boston Tea Party 2013 Update #4

(Victor DJ’d all comps)

(couples got one 90’s swing tune and one lindy tune)

Kyle and Naomi – “Motown Philly” (Boyz II Men) and “Flat Foot Floogie” (McKinney’s Cotton Pickers)

Peter and Melissa Rutz – “Poison” (Bell Biv Devoe) and “Jive at Five” (Count Basie)

Lindo and Annie – “Strike It Up” (Black Box) and “Do You Want To Jump Children” (Gene Krupa) – omgawd John Lindo what a riot – danced half of the lindy portion with his fingers on his neck, taking his own pulse, making Annie run dancing around while he stood panting from 250 beats-per-minute lindy hop. Davis Thurber (who tossed his hat to John when the lindy song came on) was laughing and clapping so enthusiastically he pounded his judging clipboard in half. Hilarious dances.

Zack and Tatiana – “Gettin’ Jiggy With It” (Will Smith) and “Something To Pat Your Foot To” (Johnny Hodges) – They somehow managed to get Zack’s shirt off of Zack and onto Tatiana – or mostly onto Tatiana – she couldn’t get one arm all the way through the sleeve and after wrestling with it just gave up and danced with one hand stuck. Oh, and she also ducked under his legs, upside down, and got a little stuck in a compromising position. Compromising for one of them but I’m not sure which one. Someone next to me said “Was she biting his pants leg?” I don’t think she was. This you have got to see – look for the video I’m sure it will be posted within days.

Speaking of videos – Davis Thurber, in addition to judging, was the videographer for this event. Check him out – he’s really good.

Arjay and Karen – “Pump Up The Jam” (Techtronics) and “The Gal From Joe’s” (Duke Ellington)

Nick and Jessica – “100% Pure Love” (Crystal Waters) and “Tutti Frutti” (Slim and Slam)

Jordan and Nicki – “Now That We Found Love” (O’Jays) and oh dang I forget which lindy song they got …

Andy and Sarah – “Ice Ice Baby” (Vanilla Ice) and “Good Queen Bess” (Johnny Hodges)

Ben and Nina – “Groove Is In The Heart” (Deee Lite) and “Saturday Night Fish Fry” (Roy Eldridge)

Mikey and Torri – “Good Vibrations” (Marky Mark) and “For Dancers Only” (Jimmy Lunceford)

For the All-Skate they did both the Shim Sham and the Wobble.
