This story was on the cover of the G section of The Boston Globe on Oct. 26, 2011. It’s an informative article about the offbeat hobby of “sword dancing” and the particpants who were getting ready for a competition in Cambridge, Mass.
No jazz hands, we’re sword dancers
Sixteen dance teams from across the United States and one from Canada will compete this weekend in Cambridge, but their routines will include no tutus, no pointe shoes, and definitely no jazz hands.
The competition is called the Dancing America Rapper Tournament or DART. But before you imagine a two-step featuring Eminem, it’s not that kind of rapper.
