On November 18 and 19, 2011, Gordon Webster and friends, with vocalist Naomi Uyama, recorded a CD live during Groove Juice Swing's weekend of workshops with world renowned swing instructors Steven Mitchell and Virginie Jensen. The event was held at the beautiful Harro East Ballroom in Rochester, NY and dancers came from far and wide to join the fun!
On Sunday Nov 20th, Steven and Virginie, together with Gordon and some of the band, conducted a musicality class, teaching dancers to go beyond executing moves and to listen and interpret the music, hear and take note of the various individual instruments, and above all, have fun with it (while never forgetting connection with the partner). They are absolutely phenomenal at teaching musicality!
