Believe it or not, when I was younger I took dance lessons. I danced from when I was very young through high school so I absolutely love any kind of movie that involves dancing. Although my dancing consisted of clogging with a bit of jazz, I would love to learn other forms of dance. Alive & Kicking is all about the world of swing dancing!
Alive & 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 society. No matter what troubles they are facing in their lives, swing dancers are filled with joy, exhilaration, and even giddiness while they dance. Boiled down to its core, swing dancing is about the pursuit of happiness. Most people think of happiness as a passive emotion: if something good happens, I will be happy. But we all have the ability to feel joy despite the worst of circumstances once we realize that happiness exists inside of us.
