Swing Dancing Lesson w/ Date Night Dance Co.
June 28 @ 6:15 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us at the dance floor in front of the Levitt Stage for a drop-in, beginners-friendly single swing dancing lesson prior to the Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience. Single Swing is pure America on the dance floor. With its roots in The Lindy Hop dances of the 1920’s East Coast Single-Time Swing is all about the speed. It has the same rhythm as the Triple Swing but faster music and less footwork. Just throw in turns and spins and you will be swingin’ to the hits of the 40’s like Sing, Sing, Sing by Benny Goodman or In the Mood by Glenn Miller; the 50’s like Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry, and Don’t be Cruel by Elvis; as well as more contemporary hits like Zoot Suit Riot by The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves. Join Date Night Dance Company instructors, Jeff and Glenda, to learn some swing moves and dance the night away. Got the dance bug? Join in at the monthly El Riad Shrine monthly social dance through the Ballroom Dance Club.
