This film will make a non-dancer understand why people love to swing dance.
14 April 2017 | by riffraffmorganSee all my reviews

Alive and Kicking follows a select group of swing dancers who actively participate in competition around the world. This documentary provides a snap shot of what it's like to be a competitive dancer and why the dance brings joy to so many people around the world. There are great moments in the film that let the viewer experience laughter, joy, and even sadness and empathy for the difficulties some of the dancers have been through. Overall, though, the experience as a whole is energetic and will make even a non-dancer understand why so many people love swing dancing.

A small criticism is that film's beginning and ending feel a bit abrupt, but once you jump into the stories, dance footage, and music; the viewer is swept up into a world where the most important experience is to have fun.
