Dear Swing City Patrons,

Just a heads up: we just launched a small "mobile" website this week and could use some "beta test" feedback. Try logging in to on your smart phone or tablet, surf around a bit, and let me know if you get anything that's clearly "not right"!

Barry Fleischer and his "Saturday Night Swing Session" this Saturday

Barry's band, renamed from the "Radio Swing Orchestra", is back this week, and will certainly deliver some great dancing. Please join us!

Also, we've got another FREE workshop from Free Dance Studio this week from 6-8pm. RSVP here: details

Just a reminder, please bring friends to Swing City! It's not only great fun for all to meet new people, but vital to not just Swing City, but the whole Boston/New England swing dance scene. The "word of mouth" approach from our regular and occasional dancers is by far the most effective way to get the word out.

Hope to see you there!
