The Swing of Things: Marching Toward Spring

marching towards spring

The thermometer outside might not show it (at least in parts of the country!) but we are marching toward Spring. With the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, and Valentine’s Day behind us, we’re looking forward to the blooms of the first bulbs and a fresh crop of viral videos to enjoy.

A Stomping Good Time During Mardi Gras

Most people think of floats and beads when they think of Mardi Gras, but the celebration involves so much more, including dance krewes. The “610 Stompers” are an all-male dance krewe with the mission to “return the ordinary man to the glory of dance.” Through sponsorships and public appearances, the 610 Stompers have raised and donated more than half-a-million dollars to charities in New Orleans. Watch the video and you will see they truly are “Ordinary Men. Extraordinary Moves.”

Eagles Soar During Philly Parade

There are plenty of videos out there of Philly fans behaving badly after the Eagles Super Bowl win; this isn’t one of them. During the Philadelphia Victory Parade, fans behaved themselves so police officers patrolling the parade could do their job AND enjoy the fun as well.

NFL Wins With Super Bowl Commercial

With a 30 second commercial costing upwards to $5 million dollars to air, companies put a lot of thought and effort into their advertisements. Some people even watch the Super Bowl just for the commercials. This year’s undisputed fan favorite was the NFL’s ode to “Dirty Dancing” with Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. and other players showing moves you never knew they had.

Here We Go Again! Mamma Mia 2

Hitting theaters this month is the trailer for the upcoming sequel (or prequel) to the smash hit Mamma Mia. In it, a pregnant Sophie learns about her mother’s past…so you see it’s sort of a sequel AND a prequel. No matter what it is, fans of dance (and ABBA hits!) are sure to love this lively romp scheduled to hit the silver screen in July. Until then, enjoy the trailer.
