Last Saturday our schools Jazz bands had a fundraiser called the big band dance. The night was awesome, dressing up in formal clothing with good friends and dancing to beautiful live music, what could be better? We spent most of the night hanging out and watching the performances. Every so often we would completely embarrass ourselves by hardcore dancing. I don’t know something about live jazz just makes you have fun. I’ve gone to every big band dance since I was in grade 7 and performing in them. I’m sad to say this year would be my last, but hopefully the joyful spirit of big band lives on for many years to come.
