Montreal Swing Riot 2016 - Vintage vs Modern Street Dancers - Part 1 of the Invitational Battle

Montreal Swing Riot 2016 - Vintage vs Modern Street Dancers - Part 1 of the Invitational Battle.

I just watched this amazing video. It really captures the beauty of retro/vintage dance and modern street dancing. I was hooked the first time I watched it. No matter how you look at it is really cool, but what stood out to me is that this video has thetallest, skinniest dude I have ever seen.

One thing that really got to me though was when I was reading the comments. The comments on that video are embarrassing. People insulting and making fun of a 15 year old kid. We have no idea what it's like to be him, have a little compassion.

If I could dance I would go for it.

I stumbled over my feet many times when I started swing dancing. I still don't have great body control.

Also realize you are watching literal professionals dancing. These are world class dancers. I've now been dancing Lindy hop just under 8 years and it brings tons of joy into my life!
