This was such a hit during our Dance on Camera Tour that we've decided to bring it back for a full week!
For many, swing dance is an addiction and a joyful practice. This documentary is an insider’s look into the culture of the current swing dance world and an examination of the social and personal issues that affect the lives of the film’s subjects. What is remarkable is that no matter how tough things get, these men and women find their bliss doing what they love. On the dance floor they virtually explode with energy - leaping, twisting, revolving. There’s no way that you’ll be able to keep still and not feel the joy.
"Although it's been used repeatedly as a movie title, Alive and Kicking perfectly captures the joyous enthusiasm of Susan Glatzer's debut documentary, which presents swing dance as a vibrant, living art form." - Village Voice
