Roffaswing Hot 100

De Rotterdamse swingscene is nog maar een dreumes en niks is zo leuk als al die kersverse dansers kennnis te laten maken met de allerbeste muziek om op te dansen. De veteranen onder ons krijgen nog steeds geen genoeg van al die swingkrakers. Dus vroegen we aan alle dansers welke favoriete swingnummers op de lijst thuis horen. Daaruit stelden we een lijst samen van 100 nummers waarop 6 januari ongelooflijk gedanst werd tijdens de eerste SwingSalon van het jaar. Dikke kans dat we er een jaarlijks evenement van maken.

The swing scene in Rotterdam is merely a todler and there is so much fun to introduce al those freshmen dancers to the greatest dance tunes out there. The veterans amongst us still won't be bored by all these overplayed clasics. So we asked all dancers which swing tunes should be on that list and we came up with 100 hot tunes on which we danced away on January 6 at the RoffaSwingSalon of the year. We are considering to make this a yearly happening.
