Ya gotta love this caption:

ca. 1940s, USA --- A soldier and his girl are shown jitterbugging in the 1940s. They are facing away from each other as they hold each other's hand, and have gleeful expressions on their faces.


"If their feet aren't in the right place
at least their hearts are."

Christian M. Chensvold, on novice swingers

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast). Basically, we swing like a gate!
