Swing Dancing Fun... This Friday night we have Bad Influence playing live for us at the Dulles Hilton!.... Fun stuff happens at the Hilton!   Also a dance jam during the second band set! There is a beginner class at 8:30, in case you don't know how to swing dance yet and the band plays from 9-midnight. It's a super friendly crowd and about 75% singles. Everybody dances with everybody! You can check out www.gottaswing.com for directions etc. We'd love to have you join us!

    Didn't dance much ... Probably my fault as a newbie and shy, I'm hesitant to ask a guy to dance ... Especially if he is a good dancer.

      This was my first time at this dance (and dancing in over a year. I moved here from IL). I danced about half the time which I consider very successful! Some days, I danced less--it may be just whoever showed up and liked your style of dancing or maybe more couples show up some days. Come back several times before you decide for sure.

      I hit "enter" too soon. Make sure you attend the lesson at the beginning--it is a great way to break the ice of a group new to you. You'll get to know a few people that way and a couple of steps. It would be helpful if the room lights were up enough to see people's pupils to see if they were looking at us, though. Maybe next time...

    All - since summer is coming to an end, tonight's theme is a white out dance. Feel free to join in and wear white if you would like. There may be a black light!

    Hi Janice,

    Thanks for welcoming me. Is there a dress code or style of which folks whom attend wear? Also, is it big band music , fifties or current genre that is played by the band attending? Do I introduce myself at the door or is there a table at which the group will be sitting? Thanks again!

      Hi Melissa, great questions! The dress code is whatever you are comfortable dancing in. Most girls do wear dresses or skirts. I like to wear black pants and a tee shirt, others come in shorts or jeans. On occasion, there are themes and several will dress according to the theme. Currently I do not know if there will be a theme this week, if I find out later in the week I'll post a note on what the theme is. The bands are typically fifties rock and roll, the band this Friday however will be a bit more bluesy. You can introduce yourself at the checkin table where you pay. I should be standing somewhere near this table with a meetup tag on. Or feel free to ask someone at the front table to point me out. I'll give you a run down of how the evening will go.
