Great music, great crowd! The band this night will be The Big Blue Big Band, with traditional swing music great for swing, lindy, and foxtrot. Singles and couples are welcome at this event, and dancers of all levels always attend.
Joe will be teaching two workshops before the dance:

Get a 2-minute history of the evolution of the swing dance as you are guided through the foundation of both 6 count East Coast moves and advanced 8 count Lindy/West Coast timing. Learn how to transition seamlessly between them.
7:15-8:00 Learn how to seamlessly transition from swing to foxtrot and back to swing for a fun palate cleansing excursion in the middle of a song. Also learn how to use 8-count traveling foxtrot moves without fear of collisions with other swing dancers. $20 both/$15 each
