Description

The U.S. Embassy supported the Vintage Swing Festival 2014, also known as “ViSwiFt,” which took place in Celje from October 17 to 19. The aim of the festival was to celebrate swing dance, music, style and friendship. The festival consisted of dance workshops, lectures on swing dance history and its influence today, and evening swing dance parties that offered live music and a set-up of an old-fashioned hairdressing booth and a vintage photo booth. Besides hosting some world class swing dance instructors, the organizers also hosted the living legend Norma Miller, also known as “The Queen of Swing.” At the age of 94, this amazing lady can still impress you with her clear mind, sharp attitude and her moves. It was almost unreal hearing first-hand the stories about her youthful encounters with Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Ethel Waters, and other jazz musicians.
