As part of our fall workshop, we are excited to present live music by the Jen Hodge All Stars! Get extra jazzed about swing dancing with this music - with the Jen Hodge All Stars, you can expect hard swinging grooves, boisterous New Orleans style horns, cheeky lyrics, clever arrangements, and plenty of spontaneous fun!
We start out each social dance with a 1-hour beginner Lindy Hop lesson. No previous dance experience or partner required. After the lesson we have an open dance floor, playing swing & big band jazz music from the 20’s – 40’s as well as some modern swing bands.
A social dance is a place to have fun, make new friends and create & share special connections with each partner. On the social dance floor, we are safe and free to truly express ourselves. We want an atmosphere that encourages everyone’s personality to shine, free of any judgement or criticism. We believe that there is no right way to dance, only a way to dance.
Music lovers, who may not be keen to dance (although there will be a beginner lesson to kick off the night), are invited to attend the concert with tickets being sold in advance or at the door.
Attire: There is no “wrong” way to dress at a dance—we just ask that you bring clean shoes. We would also recommend comfy sneakers; heals might not be that comfortable as Lindy Hop can be very energetic. There are a few formal themed dances, so those are a great time to dress fancy—but feel free to dress fancy whenever you please!
We do not tolerate or allow alcohol. There will be chips & salsa for snacking!
We love beginners!
Advance tickets: $20
