— What We Dance is Life – About that Swing Talk

The first hour of the party Abeth will talk a little bit about her thoughts and ideas around our theme, “What We Dance is Life.”  Why is that the theme of ASF?  What does it mean?  What does our music and our dance have to tell us about life and vice versa?   It’s an informal moment of sharing more than anything.
