A diverse and dynamic documentary exploring the culture surrounding swing dance from the emergence of the lindy hop to the modern-day international phenomenon.

ALIVE AND KICKING gives the audience an intimate, insider's view of the world of swing dance by telling the stories of people who are inspired to change their own lives. No matter what troubles they are facing in their lives, swing dancers are filled with joy, exhilaration, and even giddiness while they dance. Boiled down to its core, swing dancing is about the pursuit of happiness. Most people think of happiness as a passive emotion: if something good happens, I will be happy. But we all have the ability to feel joy despite the worst of circumstances once we realize that happiness exists inside of us.

Want to try your hand at swing dance yourself? That's possible! After the screening, Swing Out Maastricht will give a swing dance workshop at Lumière. Entry is free, but a reservation is required
