Swing dance on Saturday, March 30th at the Slovenian Workman's Home!

Big Swing Dance this Saturday, March 30th! The Mike Petrone Band is playing from 9pm -12am and there is an easy Jitterbug lesson for beginner dancers from 8-9. Only $12 per person and everyone is welcome. You do not need a dance partner to attend the lesson or dance. We make it really easy for you to meet people!

The Waterloo Ballroom at the Slovenian Workman's Home is located in the very artsy and lively Collinwood neighborhood. The address is 15335 Waterloo Rd, Cleveland, Ohio 44110.

The Slovenian not only has a beautiful ballroom; they also have a well stocked bar. They have alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks of all kinds for sale--including a very special Slovenian beer- Lasko! There will also be some sweet and savory snacks for sale in the bar as well.

There are TWO parking lots to the right of the ballroom and there is also some street parking as well. However, if you can carpool with friends that would be recommended. We also have a security guard who keeps an eye on the hall and both parking lots.

Be sure to arrive in time to take part in the easy jitterbug lesson from 8pm to 9pm. We always review the basic Jitterbug step, talk about the basics of leading and following, and then show a few new moves. Each lesson is unique and you will always pick up new moves and hints each time you attend a pre-dance lesson at a Get Hep Swing event. These lessons are appropriate for brand spankin' new dancers all the way up to advanced dancers. You will not be disappointed!

Immediately after the lesson (at 9 PM) the band will kick off an awesome night of music and swing dancing until 12am.

Mike Petrone and his band will be playing for this dance and they are definitely one of my personal favorites. Please check him out at

Everyone is welcome to come and have fun with us at the swing dance. There is no need to have previous dance experience or a dance partner.

No need to make reservations or buy tickets in advance. The event is $12 per person. Students and seniors with a valid ID pay only $10 per person. No need to RSVP. Just show up and have fun! We have lots and lots of room for you and all of your friends!
