 Couple swing dancing at Ah-Nab-Awen Park

Couple swing dancing at Ah-Nab-Awen Park

I can't believe it's been nearly a month since I've posted a portrait here... life and work have consumed so much of my free time, I never realize how quickly it passes by.

On my most recent day off, my friend Andrea and I went shooting around Grand Rapids after meeting up for some tacos and a couple drinks. We were drawn to Ah-Nab-Awen Park where a ton of people were gathering; it turns out the park is this summer's location for Tuesday Swing!
Every summer, the Grand Rapids Original Swing Society hosts weekly swing dancing sessions and lessons that are free for everyone and attended by folks of all levels of experience. While I'm not much of a dancer, it was a blast watching so many people showing off their moves and having a ball. Throughout the evening, couples changed and swapped partners, and this particular couple seemed thrilled to be a part of it all.
