I would love to do both, but I have got to be realistic about my time constraints.
If you were me and had the choice between:
A: Sewing classes
B: Learn to Jitterbug Swing: Jive/EastCoast, Lindy Hop, and Charleston
Which would you choose? Why?

Definitely learn to sew! I know some basic stitches, but would love to learn more. How awesome it would be to sew your own outfits!

@Cynderbug: definetly dancing! It would be so much fun and you’d get some exercise as well win win:)))

Well I know how to do both but if I had to choose I would choose a sewing class because I could use some improvement!

@Cynderbug: Dancing, I do swing/rockabilly with my FI and we love it, it gives you something to do on a weekend, you meet other couples, plus its exercise.

@Cynderbug: I went to a dance class as a partner for someone one time and learned how to do the jitterbug…it was kinda easy and fun. I mean, it was really fun.
But I would love to sew…the right way. I can sew if I have to but I think it would be awesome to be good at it!

@Cynderbug: Dancing–it’ll get your blood pumping and put you in a good mood even if you’re having a bad day! I used to do ballroom and social dancing in college, and it definitely helped alleviate stress and made me happy.

Dancing! It can turn into a social activity if you start going out to local social dances after a few classes. I do West Coast swing… its similar-ish to Jitterbug/Lindy… but at the same time totally different XD Similar attitude of the people that dance it though – really friendly!

@Cynderbug: I put dancing. YouTube Jo Hoffberg. Amazing Lindy Hop dancer. I think getting up and being active would be the healthier option as well as fun. But for me, a person with two left feet, I would need someone to teach me. When it comes to sewing, I could read and watch YouTube videos to learn how to do it, or to improve upon my skills. I know someone who does a fairly good job at this and has only learned sewing by YouTube and simple searches.

@Cynderbug: Dance is the kind of thing that even if you look ridiculous or don’t know any formal moves you can manage just fine to express yourself and have fun. Sewing on the other hand requires learning specific skills or it just doesn’t work. My highschool got rid of the sewing program the year before I entered. I’ve always wanted to learn how to sew.

Sewing comes in real handy far more so that swing. So sewing.

Learn to sew, then I could actually make the clothes I want but can’t find in stores, and my SO could stop sewing my halloween costumes for me… haha (it’s funny too because my dad was excellent with a sewing machine).

Dancing! I think you can teach yourself to sew.

I’d be more interested in being able to sew, personally 🙂 and it’s certainly more useful than dancing ^^
But at the same time I feel it’s a lot easier to teach yourself how to sew? Like you can get the basics and some more complicated stuff from books (as well as common sense) , so unless you wanted to learn to a really complex level it wouldn’t be impossible to teach yourself :3
But then again I’d pick the sewing class so it is a tough choice XD
