Recreate a 30’s atmosphere at your dinner party by enjoying some Jazz.
Dinner is a good time for talking. Take advantage by adding a subtle musical background of the era’s favorite tunes:
– Je t’ai donné mon coeur – Willy Thunis
– J’ai deux amours – Josephine Baker
– C’est si bon – Louis Armstrong
– Dream a Little Dream of Me – Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald
After dinner you can get back to the dancing. Let the songs that enchanted clubs and ballrooms the world over, guide you through dance moves combining acrobatics and good humor.
For a return to Swing, adopt a relaxed position, with the chest slightly forward then get a little creative with some acrobatic moves to surprise your guests to Glenn Miller’s In The Mood.
To give your dinner a more Rock feel, bend your legs, arch your back and throw yourself into a demonstration of Andrews Sisters’ dancing, as in their famous song, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B.
Lastly, to end your demonstration in total elegance, go with the Charleston. To the rapid beat of Sing, Sing, Sing by Benny Goodman, improvise a few acrobatic moves.
