FRI–SAT
Michael Gamble’s Rhythm Serenaders at Rhythm is Our Business
CenterStage Events Venue (Gallatin, TN)
time TBA, tickets required
“Live music is, arguably, one of the most pivotal parts of Lindy Hop - the history of our dance is steeped in the sounds of Duke Ellington, Jimmy Lunceford, Count Basie, and all of the swing bands we know and love. But when it comes to the partnership between dance and live music, we're missing something - and Rhythm Is Our Business looks to bridge that gap. We're here to bring you the best in partnership - the partnership between dancers and live music, the partnership between song form and flow of movement, the partnership between dancers and their dance partners, and the way all of these come together to create a perfect dance. In a world where emphasis is put on steps and technique in movement, we want to remind you how to bring it back to the original roots of moving to and with the music you dance alongside. Rhythm Is Our Business brings you back to the music. Let's re-acquaint ourselves with that partnership together!”
