Off The Beaten Virtual Track

The Savoy Ballroom, known as, The Track, to the regulars, was a ballroom famed for creating many a swing dance including the spectacular Lindy Hop.

Sadly, the ballroom was demolished in 1958 as so modern dancers can no longer strut their stuff on the famed dance floor. Jazz Mad London are set to give us the next best thing however.

Their objective is to set up a virtual reality ballroom to give the modern viewer a taste of what it was like to spend a night while the likes of Chick Webb kept the joint jumping. Let’s hope this virtual project becomes a reality.
