The Beantown Swing
Orchestra continues its first Saturday swing
dances in Concord, for one final time
at the Performing Arts Center at 51 Walden before moving back to the Scout
House in October.
Professional dancer Julia Wood
and Olin College student Kevin Sihlanick will give a beginner swing dance lesson at 8:00pm,
which is free with admission and no partner is required. Because
the "followers" rotate through the "leaders," it's a great way to meet
people before the dance begins.
Then, the 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra will
get the dance floor swinging with its classic big band arrangements from the
1930s and 1940s. The band mainly consists
of college students from Berklee and NEC, as well as some recent
grads. There is plenty of energy here
to get the place swinging all night
