Barbara's Dancing Tonight Presents!
The Davis Swing Kids is a dancing team, consisting mostly of adolescents between the ages of thirteen and seventeen (with exception of the instructors). The instructors, Barbara and Jeanette, are both experienced dancers. The company is rehearsing Tuesdays and Thursdays at Barbara's Dancing Tonight, and all are welcomed to come and see how things go. The songs they are currently choreographing to is The Andrew Sisters' "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and "Give me More" by Apartment 26 (the two songs are spliced together to form a -roughly- three minute dance).
- The Davis Swing Kids dance troupe will begin their 2009-2010 season tryouts, Tuesdays, September 15th & 22nd from 5:00-6:30pm and Thursdays, September 17th & 24th from 5-6pm at Barbara’s Dancing Tonight, 1921 Sycamore Lane, Davis. !!!! Call Barbara Nicholas for more info: 530-756-8371.

2005-11-17 22:03:05 I think the best thing about Swing Kids is the amazing amount of effort put into it, by every member of the team. I hate how I look in that photo! We should take a group one with everybody in it for this page. —JohnDudek
2005-11-19 21:33:53 for SURE we need a group photo... I was just going to upload solo pictures of everyone (like Zach's which is actually right outside before some Tuesday)... what do you think? —SamanthaSpada
2005-11-19 23:06:05 I'd actually perfer a group pic, because the SwingKiddos are a team, so it seems more fitting to have a group picture. —JohnDudek
2005-11-19 23:52:35 Holy memories, Batman! I was in the first group of Swing Kids when Barbara started the thing in the early nineties (1994?). I wonder if there are incriminating pictures of me at BDT? —GrahamFreeman
2005-11-21 22:14:27 mmm... I'll get a group picture next Tuesday (can't tomorrow, don't have a camera) and It will be up ASAP. —SamanthaSpada
2005-11-21 22:15:11 PS- (for Graham) I wonder if there are incriminaing pictures of you... and other former Swing Kids... Thanks for the reminder I'm going to ask Barbara about that tomorrow. _ —SamanthaSpada
2005-12-06 18:26:21 Thanks for putting up the alumni, that's a really cool idea. —JohnDudek
2005-12-19 17:22:41 And why aren't there any pictures of me? You guys would be nothing without me! You hear me?!? NOTHING!!! I'm juuussttt kidddiinnggg, no but seriously, why are there no pictures of me? Not cool. You all are getting the cold shoulder until my face is up here. —ErinGidding
2005-12-19 23:09:16 Sorry that your beautiful face isn't here yet, Erin. I'll bring a camera to the next practice, then we can pepper this page with your wonder! lol. Thanks for the great show on Friday. —JohnDudek
2006-02-02 08:58:45 Ok, I am most DEFINITELY taking pictures tonight (seeing as I'm a bit under the weather and probalby won't be able to dance much). So Erin won't have to worry about not being up here yet —SamanthaSpada
2006-02-07 20:21:08 That picture of me is awful it needs to leave. —JeanettetheChipette
2006-03-02 20:06:54 OH! That picture is much better I love it. Thanks for changing em!!! :) —JeanettetheChipette
2006-12-26 19:58:54 I've added a photo of a subset of the original group... I'm not sure when it was taken, but I'd guess 1996? —DougCoker
2009-05-13 17:33:37 This page is in need of some serious updates, as the team is completely different as it was when this page was made... in 2007. I'll get on that soon and try to get a picture of the current team! —JohnDudek
