Every Friday for thirty weeks, I will write about a topic from the list of the
“30 Week Lindy Hop Challenge“.
I'm late again…
Week #14: My Best Friends Are Dancers
Most of my friends nowadays are dancers. It just naturally happened.
Many of them are longtime friends since the beginning of my swing dance career.
When I started dancing Lindy Hop more than 10 years ago, I was regularly travelling from my former hometown to Zurich (one hour drive) to dance as much as possible.
Marcia, my present dance and teaching partner – who actually was my first regular Lindy Hop teacher! – introduced me into the Zurich swing scene. Thus it happened that I met a lot of new people and soon after, I was part of a performance troup.
The majority of these guys are still involved in my local scene and over time, I became best friends with a few of them.
Through my extensive travelling I also made international friends. I even got two brothers: a Catalan and an Austrian :). I love to hang out with them and spend time as much as possible when I see them.
I have non-dancing friends as well but I have to admit, that most of my activities and social contacts are somehow related to dancing.
