Celebrate the coming of spring with us at Swing City!
Please join us for a fun night of dancing with Dan Gabel and the Abletones, who specialize in the music of the 1930s and 40s and the sights and sounds of the era when swing music was king, and boosted the morale of the nation during the Second World War. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Les Brown, Vaughn Monroe, Harry James, and many other favorites that swing fans listened and danced to around their radios during the Golden Broadcast Era of dance bands. A free introductory swing lesson is offered at 8pm and the dance starts at 9pm.
You'll also be treated with free popcorn and if you're lucky, we'll bring out our cotton candy machine and make one to your order. The dance hall is air conditioned, has a beautiful surfaced wood dance floor and a stage that acoustically makes the band sound that much better. It's one of the bets venues in town.
Admission is $18 general and $14 with a valid student ID.
Also, we support a local dance studio that offers free dance lessons. Check it out:
Free 90-minute workshop before the dance at 6pm.
