Le’odance shoes for swing dancers

I had never heard of the Le’odance brand of dance shoe until I bought a pair off someone who was selling them because they were too big. They are a French company and I have to say, they are THE most comfortable (of the more formal heeled, raw leather-soled swing dance shoes) that I have ever owned. So comfy and move well on the floor. I wish they had an outlet in Australia. Great low and medium heels for Balboa and Lindy with so many colours and styles. Check out some of my favourite ones. I love the duo-toned ‘Saby’.

RIP Patty Andrews, 1918 – 2013

Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of swing-era vocal group the Andrews Sisters (and the center sister in the photo below), died today of natural causes. She was 94. A beautiful lady with a golden voice.

‘Bounce Me Brother With a Solid Four’ will always be my fav of their songs. Thought I’d post the clip here. Not the mention that we get to see Jewel McGowan and Dean Collins dance. 🙂

From the late Thirties through the Forties, the Andrews Sisters produced one hit record after another. Patty Andrews is in the centre
