Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking Release Date: April 7, 2017

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.

Born out of the Great Depression, swing dancing elevates the human spirit beyond one’s circumstances as dancers can move to the beat for the sheer joy of it and disappear into something bigger, something dazzling, a space without a critic or a judge or an analyst.

The film 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.
