I directed this video featuring swing dancing in Chicago with music by local jazz favorites, Fat Babies and The Modern Sounds.
This video was inspired by I Charleston the World, a website created by some Charleston enthusiasts in Montpellier, France that features a world map with links to videos of dancers doing Charleston in front of famous places around the world.
I was very lucky to work with amazing choreographers, dancers and crew over many weekends this summer to create this video.
