Okay Folks, Thanks so much for agreeing to be a part of this project. Below I’ve posted the schedule for videotaping. Before I get to the content of the videos, a couple orders of business.

  1. Try to arrive a bit early so we can keep everything rolling (although one never knows how long each person may end up taking), so thank you for your patience with all of this.
  2. Dress nice.
  3. If there is someone who you’d like to bring along to help you tell your story, perhaps a friend or family member that is also a part of your story, please do. We’d love that.

Our goal is to tell the story of Omaha Jitterbugs, which is a story composed of all the stories of the individual people who make Omaha Jitterbugs special. So, I’ve put together a short list of questions, not all of which will apply to you. I’d like to invite you to choose the question or two that best apply to you and your experience with Omaha Jitterbugs and get back with me. let me know what question you chose and a summary of your response to that question. During taping, I’ll ask you the question and perhaps a few follow up questions to help you tell your story. The thread that we’d like to see unite these stories is something that makes Omaha Jitterbugs (or it’s events) special either to you personally, or more broadly to the Omaha community. Perhaps your personal story isn’t so much about the events, but what they represent, like how you met your friends or the love of your life or discovered something about yourself.

Here’s some questions . Pick one or two to help you shape your Omaha Jitterbugs testimonial.

  • Talk about something that makes Omaha Jitterbugs or its events unique or special.
  • Talk about something unique that Omaha Jitterbugs adds to the Omaha community.
  • Talk about a meaningful relationship (connections) you’ve formed through Omaha Jitterbugs.
  • Talk about Omaha Jitterbugs role in the growth of your relationship with dance or music.
  • Talk about the unique interactions with others that dancing has enabled.
  • How does swing dancing make you feel? What is it about swing dancing that brings out so many different emotions?
  • Talk about something you learned from swing dancing that has had a positive impact on some other part of your life.
  • Are you transformed by the music or the dancing? Describe the transformation.
  • Do you have any favorite memories about Omaha Jitterbugs that illustrate a sense of joy or interconnectedness?
