No need to RSVP "No".

The Swing Dance Era began in the 1920s and went on through into the 1950's. In the 1980's it made a big come-back and is now a celebrated and studied form of dance with competitions around the world.
The venue (http://swing46.com/?page_id=775) features music and dance styles from the fabulous Swing Era. You can Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Waltz, Foxtrot, or freestyle!
You will find the most talented, professional musicians from all over the world with charts and arrangements that are impeccable and true to the genre.
There is a beginner dance lesson is at 9pm taught by a professional instructor and usually lasts a half hour. The band plays from 9:30pm to 1:00am
There is a minimal music charge for entertainment, which includes the Dance Lesson, the Swing DJ, the Live Band and Dancing. Dinner and Drinks are separate.
The music charge is just $15 on Fridays.
We will have dinner first, then have the dance lesson and stay to watch the band and practice what we learned in the dance lesson!
If you either do not wish to join us for dinner, or if you are on the waiting list and not able to get an "attending" spot for dinner, you can still join us AFTER dinner for the dancing part of the evening. This will begin at 9 p.m. If you are only coming for the dancing, please indicate that. You will be moved to a "waiting" position, so someone else can take one of the "attending" positions for the dinner. This does not mean that you are not able to come, just that you won't be joining us for dinner!
Dinner will be a la carte. You will pay for what you eat and drink and use the rule of 1.3 (this means you take the cost of your food and drinks prior to taxes/tip being added and multiply by 1.3. This will allow you to cover taxes and a 20% tip. If you want to leave less than a 20% tip, please do not join us for dinner.)
