Documentary: A Place To Dance

I got an email from supervising producer Jason Wehling at Arts & Labor about the documentary film: "A Place To Dance".

This is how he describes the documentary:

"A PLACE TO DANCE follows New Orleans' longest-running big band, The Pat Barberot Orchestra, and in addition to capturing the feel of big band and the swing dancing that accompanies it, we've gotten into the personal lives of some of the musicians and fans who've been involved with the Orchestra for years (some since the 1940s).

When Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005, many of our subjects lost their homes, and the dancehall the band performs in sustained major damage, but they pushed forward, and in the end, we think these folks dedication to the music speaks volumes.

Here is a video clip from the documentary "A Place To Dance":

This seems to be a wonderful documentary about swing music and dance and I would love to see the whole film. If you would like to know more about the film, take a look at the film's official website.

Have you seen the documentary "A Place To Dance"? What do you think of it? Tell me.
