Lindy hop social Wednesday night

Wednesday night I swung by Chicago on Södermalm for a bit of Lindy hop dancing. I saw lots of friend there, including Mette, pictured here dancing with Mark, a D.J. & dancer visiting from Seattle.

There's no air conditioning at Chicago, and the meager ventilation system is inadequate to the task. Everyone was drenched in sweat. Many dancers changed shirts twice or more, and at times I had sweat dripping from my forehead into my eyes! Next time I'll have to wear a hat or a headband. Even with the the heat, the place was packed. I took breaks from dancing only so I could capture a few photos!
