Born out of the Great Depression, swing dancing elevates the human spirit beyond one’s circumstances as dancers can move to the beat for the sheer joy of it and disappear into something bigger, something dazzling, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst. ALIVE AND KICKING gives the audience an intimate, insider’s view into the culture of the current swing dance world while shedding light on issues facing modern American society.
