Alive and Kicking Screening & Live Performance
San Francisco Dance Film Festival and Magnolia Pictures present a preview screening of Alive and Kicking, a feature-length documentary that takes an inside look into the culture of swing dancing and the characters who make it special.
The film explores the culture surrounding Swing dance from the emergence of the Lindy Hop to the modern day international phenomenon. Following the growth of Swing dance from its purely American roots as an art form, to countries all over the world, Alive and Kicking looks at the lives of the Swing dancers themselves to find their personal stories and why this dance fills them with joy.
Screening followed by a live swing-dance performance. Come dressed in your favorite outfits as we’ll give out prizes for best outfits, shoes and poses – we’ll have a photographer on site.
