Film Summary: Alive and Kicking is a feature-length documentary that takes an inside look into the culture of swing dancing and the characters who make it special. This toe-tapping movie explores the culture surrounding Swing dance from the emergence of the Lindy Hop to the modern day international phenomenon. The film follows 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. Join us in celebration of a dance movement whose revival has lasted longer than its original dance craze!
What the critics are saying:
The music, the interviews, the interleavening of stock footage, the way the various modern narratives and backgrounding histories are fitted together: All of this works toward a successful expression of what means a thing because it does have that swing.
