France - Festival-BoogieWoogie Laroquebrou
As you can see, for the 16th year Laroquebrou in South Central France is sponsoring a festival in honor of the boogie-woogie dance craze still sweeping through Europe.
Boogie-woogie is a form of swing dance and a form of blues piano playing. The term is common in Europe and the dance grew out of the American Lindy Hop, Swing and Rock n Roll dances of the late 1940's and 1950's.
Here is a Swedish couple performing at the French Festival a dance that looks like it came right out of New Orleans. Double click for full screen enjoyment.
Some believe the European interest and Boogie-woogie craze resulted from all the American GIs in Europe in World War II who loved to dance.
Sometimes you just gotta dance!
