SLCN.TV's Live Tonight & SLindy Hopping Machinimas

by Maar Auer

All rightie! Right after the rezzday party - btw, a HUGE thanks to all who showed up, it was a blast, what a fantastic evening! - I was invited as a guest in Paisley Beebe's Tonight Live Show in SLCN.TV . Now you can watch the entire episode here in's pages. There was the lag of the century, you remember that dark and stormy night two weeks back... So forgive the at times jittery camera, SLCN staff made miracles just managing to pull the show through *raises her hat in awe*. My part starts a bit after half way point. You will see fantastic dancers presenting first the Charleston and then the brand new SLindy Hop : My favorite 'pas de deux' -couple Yoland Hirvi and Lord Lisle were accompanied by Darleez DeCuir and Davon Westland - and the result is truly a sight for sore eyes... ;)

If you'd prefer to see only the SLindy Hopping part of the show without having to listen to my bizarre finnish-english accent, you can watch a two minute cut here, embedded from youtube.

That's it for now - more machinimas may be coming at some point, consider this a warning ;) I'll upload them in this page in Youtube, if you're interested. CU inworld, have a lovely summer & happy dancings!
Dancers outfits were kindly sponsored by Patrick Rotunno / Cartunno Couture (Yolanda's beautiful red flapper dress in Charleston and also SLindy Hop) and Artilleri (all the awesome 50's outfits in SLindy Hop).

You are invited to Slindy Hop into 1950's!

by Yolanda Hirvi

Now is your change to be one of the first ones ever danced SLindy Hop! (I have danced it already :p that is me dancing in the pic with Lord Lisle). The SLindy Hop by Maar Auer is going to be released 6th July! And we are gonna have a party! And another reason for partying is Maar's first rezday in SL. Congrats Maar!

SLindy Hop is an SL couples dance in style of Lindy Hop swing, that was at its most popular during 1930s-1950s. As the name SLindy Hop suggests, this is an SL modified version of the original dance. It shows clear signs of the rise of rock'n'roll in early 50's, into which Lindy Hop finally assimilated.

And I promise you boys and girls you will FLIP when you try this one!
Maar has worked her ass off with this one, and the result is just.. amazing! If you liked Charleston..SLindy Hop will freak you out!

You are welcome to party with us in Metaversal Arts Grunge Hangar
built by Yolanda Hirvi just for this occasion.
The theme is 1950's ! You can dress up according to theme,
but there is NO dress code. Just show up and do some hop with us!

The tunes are provided by Radio Riel. (And the event is broadcast live).

Bring your friends and neighbours..lets hop the roof down!

Pssst.. Best place shopping for 1950's style clothes is Artilleri .
