Dance Off Your Thanksgiving Dinner!
I would love to attend this event but my arm will not have healed by this date! This will be a no-host event but please sign up and use the comments section to organize to meet others there. Free! Dance off your holiday dinner at a Thanksgiving Day Swing Dance Party, as the Millennium Stage and Gottaswing present a festive program featuring DR. ZOOT and special guests JEAN VELOZ, RUSTY FRANK and IRENE THOMAS at the Kennedy Center. Beginner swing lesson with Tom and Debra 6-6:45pm; dance performances 6:45-7pm; dance 7-9pm; FREE!!! Jean Veloz will be there. She danced in MGM films of the 1940s featuring swing dancers and her video of her 90th birthday dance went viral on YouTube with more than five million views! We’re also joined by Irene Thomas, who danced along with Veloz and others in MGM films, plus Los Angeles Lindy Hopper and tap dancer Rusty Frank. This event will run until 9 p.m. Here's a video from a previous year of this dance. Dr. Zoot Band

What we're about

*Please understand that you will not be approved if you do not provide a picture of your face without sun glasses or a big hat obscuring your face! You should also be the only person in the picture.l

Our group offers social gatherings inside & outside the DC Capitol Beltway, sometimes these gatherings are impromptu and other times they are planned. Would you like to try out a new restaurant, indulge in a local happy hour, view an exhibition, go to the movies, hear live music, want to take a dance lesson or go dancing, relax & chat in a cafe...? Why go alone? Or not at all? This is your chance to invite nearby fun people to join you. There are some requirements to join Social Popups. First, you must provide a picture of your face without sun glasses or a hat obscuring your face. It should be a frontal shot and close enough so that we can see your face. We don't do creepy so if you are not willing to provide a picture as described this group is probably not meant for you. Another requirement is that you treat each other with the utmost respect. No fighting, gossiping, name calling, stalking, using or abusing. This kind of behavior will result removal from Social Popups!

We look forward to seeing you at events with us in the DMV area.
