What is Zero to 60?


zero_2_60

A fundraiser! Motivation to improve your dancing! Fun performances to watch! Dancing on a team or working on choreography are some of the best ways to improve your dancing. But it is challenging to come up with a whole song of choreography, hard to get everyone to rehearse, and intimidating to perform! We get it. ZERO to 60 is here to help you get over the jitters. Step 1: Create a routine up to 60 seconds (max!). Solo jazz, lindy […]

Busy Sweet Jubilee Bees!


IMG_5734

ALL I DO, ALL I DO, ALL I DO, ALL I DO… Whew we’ve been busy! We’ve had two gigs in the past two days. For the first of those, we performed All I Do seven times within approximately two hours! Albuquerque has been oddly warm for January for most the month, but wouldn’t you know the first morning of our performance days, it snowed, and snowed! Now for Albuquerque that means a nice dusting, which is just fine with us. […]

New Years Eve and A LOT of Balloons!


DSCF1844a

We had an absolute blast performing at the Palace Restaurant & Saloon for New Years Eve! We even debuted a new routine that we just adore. Our grand finale and new routine was a balloon burlesque number. Eva chose the song Singing in the Rain for this number and we were dressed as rain clouds. (Balloons = Clouds, get it?) With only a few weeks to learn and polish this number, the three of us (that were in town) worked […]

Lovely day in the park


IMG_7221a

A few weekends ago we ventured out for a small performance at Hyder Park in Nob Hill as part of a fundraiser for our friends, Sage and Jared’s Happy Gland Band. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon for some live music and food in the park! We performed ‘All I Do’ and ‘Muskrat Ramble,’ both in a much scaled down way since we couldn’t all make it to the event. No performance can be problem free, and on this day […]

A Tribute to Carmen Miranda


Carmen Miranda - 5

This past weekend at Nob Hill’s Summerfest we debuted our newest routine, Chica Boom. The song was originally performed by Carmen Miranda in That Night in Rio (1941). We used a slightly different recording of the song for our routine. By doing a tribute to Carmen Miranda, our costumes had to look the part. With our soloist in a vintage mermaid gown and massive headpiece, the rest of us wore many ruffles and piled our own hair up high with […]

How to Throw a Great Gatsby Party, Part 2


Gatsby Party Paper Moon

Wow what a party! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us and revel in a night straight out of the 1920s! First check out a few photos from our party to see what how the night went.   Location: We were so lucky to be able to use the TangoXchange space here in Albuquerque. It’s a local tango studio located in a old brick walled, tin ceiling, store front right on Central Avenue (Rt. 66). […]

The Rumble at Marble Brewery


Food Truck Rumble - Tears

Last Wednesday Sweet Jubilee dug out our glad rags, okay maybe ours are not so buried, to be part of Inhabitants of Burque’s Food Truck Rumble hosted at Marble Brewery. The theme of the rumble was 1920s/1930s. A live jazz band, Zoltan the Incredible and His Royal Two Man Pirate Circus Band, four local food trucks throwing it down by each serving an incredible meal paired with a brew by Marble, a fun photo booth (see us in the booth), us […]

Tokyo Boogie Woogie


Tokyo Boogie Woogie

The debut of Toyko Boogie Woogie Sweet Jubilee has been beyond busy in the past few months, and the next month is just more of the same. We wouldn’t have it any other way! We left off on our last blog post as getting ready for the big performance at the Albuquerque Museum. Our vintage selves were ready to go. Costumes made, props polished, and hair and make-up practiced. We entertained a good crowd that night with five routines. Our […]

Art Deco Ready


You'll definitely want to see our "fan" dance!

We are a very short two days away from our next performance, and if you follow us on Facebook there’s a good chance you’ve seen how much we’ve been promoting the event! We are so exciting we are dancing right out of our t-strap shoes! We have been feverishly sewing costumes, researching Art Deco hair, makeup, and fashion, and of course practicing our lovely dance moves. This past Sunday we had our first dress rehearsal. Seeing everything come together that […]
