Where: The Avalon 6185 Arapahoe Rd Boulder CO 80303
Swing dancing with live music! First an hour-long swing dance lesson (7 - 8 PM) in the basics of swing dancing, plus lots of cool moves. Then open dancing from 8 to 11:00 PM with live music by a variety of local dance orchestras.
The admission price is normally $15. I have asked for a discount for the Grey Wolves. When you pay at the door tell them your with the Grey Wolves and want a discount. I have asked Jim to tell me if there is an issue with giving us our usual discount. The past swing dances we have attended our cost has been $10 with the discount, so it's worth asking!
Bands include the Swingin' Seven, the Hot Tomatoes, the 20-piece Zing! Big Band, the 20-piece Colorado Big Band, The Swing Chicks, After Midnight Jazz Sextet, Susan Roger's Exuberant Quartet, Gypsy Swing Review, A Pair of Jacks, Sacrebleu, and others.
All welcome; couples and singles, beginners, all ages. Casual or party attire. A nice place to listen to live music, even if you don't dance!
The dance lesson and light refreshments included with your admission price.
A great place to practice, and to meet other dancers!
