Hi all,

So the sun is back, and so the outside fun! For this meet up we celebrate the beautiful 6th district of Paris and what it is very famous for: JAZZ!

Once a year a great Jazz festival is taking place in Saint-Germain, with a top line up! Many concerts, but the best is the open-air Ball, that takes place in a court, with a dance floor, a live band (14 musicians, including three trumpets, three trombones, four saxophones plus / trio piano bass / drums, sublimated this year by the presence of the American singer Gilda Solve!

They will take us back to Fifties like a Time machine!!!! No need to be a professional swing dancer, professional dancers will do the show for us, but it's always more fun to try! :)

Girls, dress up girly, Guys, dress us a bit smart, think Paris after the 2nd World War... How great they looked, and happy they must have been!

Practically the plan is to meet at 7pm in a cool bar of the area (TBC soon) for a drink and get to know the group, before heading to the Ball.
Do book your Ball ticket in advance as it could very much be sold out, or make you queue longer if you don't have yours:

PS: It is 14 Euros, the Ball was originally scheduled for the 25 May but they changed for the better weather of this Saturday!

Looking forward to it!
