Swing Maniacs

After arriving in Spain, it didn’t take long for my host brother Joan and I to become instant friends. This picture summarizes our friendship. Here we stand outside of a Churro shop, laughing as we demonstration the famous “Big Kick” of swing dancing. Swing dancing is a major pastime in Barcelona and four times a week I would go dancing with my host mom and host brother. As swing is a social dance, I was able to interact with hundreds of people. I got to talk with them and understand them. I asked about their families, their ambitions, their thoughts. I learned what made them laugh and what made them cry. I learned who they were as people, and it was an experience unlike any other. -Madison McCall, Barcelona, Spain, Fall 2015
