Gotta learn the shim sham!
Thursday, December 28, 2006

So I've been learning the Lindy Hop for the past few months. I've had a total of about 12 hours worth of lessons, and I'm actually pretty good at it (with the right partner of course). The place I take lessons at and go for social dancing is pretty cool. A lot of regulars show up for the dancing Monday and Friday nights, some dressed up in neat 40's and 50's styles.


One of the regular routines performed is the Shim Sham. It's pretty much the "electric slide" of Lindy Hop. When I first saw the regulars perform the routine, I felt like I was in a musical. I thought "how did they all know the steps to perform together?" It wasn't until later that I found out it's a standard routine that you can pick up and learn with enough visits.


Since then I've been searching the web for videos on how to do the shim sham. Most videos show similar steps, with some variations. My problem though, is that the particular song they play at the dance studio I go to is nowhere to be found! How can I practice the shim sham if I don't have the song file? I did find one video on youtube that had the song, but the routine is a bit different. I desperately want to find the original song (i.e. mp3). If you can find it, I will love you forever and ever.
