There have been more lovely images of Madame Ornata and I coming in from various sources, so I’m going to indulge myself and give you one last deluge of photos.
The first three are by a professional photographer who was at the dance. HannieSunshine does amazing, beautiful work, and I’m so excited by the gorgeous photos she got of Madame Ornata and I. It was a very difficult venue to get good photographs in, and she got some impressive stuff. I can definitely recommend her.
Hannie’s last photo has a story. It is a tradition in Swing circles that when someone has a birthday they get their own personal swing steal set. All the dancers form a circle and the birthday boy (or girl) gets danced with by as many ladies (or men, respectively) as can pop in and steal him away from his previous partner.
A special birthday happened the night of Windy Lindy – one of our dancers turned 75, so all of the ladies vied for a chance to get lucky enough to dance with him during his birthday set.
The other photos of the night were taken by various guests and ball organisers.
