You're reading: Swing dancing in Kyiv

At the end of the track, entitled “Shout Sister Shout”, everyone stops for a breather and swaps partners. I’m knackered.

People often ask what Kyiv is like for a foreign diplomat. My answer is usually that most of the Ukrainian people with whom I come into contact are an exceptionally friendly and relaxed bunch with what can only be described as a pretty cool attitude to life.

Nowhere are these attributes more obviously on display than at the Kyiv Swing Dance Club, which I joined for a season of learning the “Lindy Hop” in September 2010. You can see some of the basic moves of Lindy Hop here (the actual dancing starts 2 minutes and 40 seconds into the clip).
