This message comes a little after the storm, but I meant to write you since Savoy Cup and never did. Sorry! I wanted to salute and congratulate you about everything you have made, created and developed… Since our conversations couple of years ago, you know that I’m admiring and supporting you. And I’m really, really happy to witness where your business vision brings you. And therefore grateful about what you bring to the Lindy community – on a worldwide level. Cause it’s contagious and beneficial internationally. I have been impressed about all the crew that came to Montpellier and what they have communicated. Without mentioning that every team KILLED it, what stroke me the most is the attitude London peeps had off the dance floor. Supporting each other, creating a vibe like every dancer they were shouting for was unique and the best in a way. I don’t know if I can make it clear here by writing but yeah – I’ve been happily amazed and I wanted to share that with you. I know this can’t all come from you but it means to me that you had the skill to surround yourself by the right persons. Seriously, I even start considering moving to London and collaborate with your scene. If I can contribute to this scene that I’m amazed by, that could be awesome. I ever wanted to give my daughter a school experience abroad. So it won’t happen anytime soon but in 4 or 5 years from now that could be something that happen. And let me tell you that because of your hard work and labour, London is a city that I would love to explore the possibility. Long story short, congratulation and please keep doing your thing. The Lindy world will never be thankful enough for what you’re doing!”
Thank you to our six London troupe leaders – Matt Bedell (our New York secret weapon so heroic in so many ways and a true visionary), Moe Sakan (adding that touch of class that we are so lucky to have access to) and of course our two Dixie Dinah troupe leaders Ash & Robyn who have navigated, curated and managed the Dinahs to levels that no one could have dreamed of. Many Skyliners are in individual events so Ben, Michaela and Cat should be acknowledged also.
Ash is moving back to Australia over next few months and London will miss you terribly. The Dinahs will miss your leadership and have truly represented. The commitment that all troupe members, teachers, competitors have showed over recent weeks has been nothing short of herculean.
Love every step you take and thank you for being such great ambassadors of our Swing Patrol family and of the dance itself. We all wish each and every competitor the very best. See you in Montpellier,
.. let’s do this.. 🙂
