On Monday, March 30th, 2009, ABC’s Dancing With the Stars featured a visit by David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson to Lindy Groove in Pasadena! The episode even included a Lindy Groove shout-out by David during the back room interviews!


David and Kym seemed really cool and even participated in the jam circle. Unfortunately, it was my birthday too, so I was in the circle too and didn’t get a dance with Kym!


The rest of the episode featured “Lindy Hop”, although swing done by ballroom dancers can hardly be called authentic (I don’t think there was one real swingout in the whole episode). Nevertheless, it was national exposure to swing dancing (however flawed) and our local swing scene! – Brian
