This all-star line up, hand picked by swing dancers and our band leader, comes together the weekend of June 20-22 to play incredible swing music! This featured event on June 22 is a public concert, intended for non-dancers and enthusiasts of authentic 1930’s and 1940’s style swing music played by bands such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Erskin Hawkins, Fletcher Henderson, and the like. Following the concert is an optional beginner’s dance lesson and swing dance social.
There will be 2 sets played for the concert, including a short intermission. After the concert will be a 30-45m swing lesson, followed by another 2 sets of music. Please note that the space will be especially bustling after the swing lesson, with limiting seating, to make space for the dance floor. It will be a fantastic party!
Limited tickets are available for the concert and the lesson/dance. First-come, first-serve seating.
