Swing Kids at Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Swing Kids of Toronto

Celebrate the Arts @ St. Clair & Yonge

This festival site showcased Toronto's rich arts and cultural-entertainment scene featuring jazz, swing, big band, opera and orchestral music along with street theatre, dance and visual arts. Festival-goers visited Yonge & St. Clair for a truly unique and inspiring celebration of Toronto's vibrant arts community.

There was Joanna and Tyler and Sean by the bar; there was Danielle, a Jean Arthur dopplegänger under retro-bleached curls; there was Jessica kicking her saddle shoes into a sundae'd blur; there was Mandy and her sister Zoey, almost identically round-cheeked and fresh-complected as a 1926 Borax ad, and they had all come to Lindy Hop.
