Swing City Moves to Springstep this Friday!
We'll be there until the end of August, except on Aug.
1 when we have a special night. Read on for that! Also,
"The Annex" will open again tentatively next
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD! Many
people aren't on this list, so please let your friends
know we've moved!
IS IT EASY TO GET THERE? I got a lot
of calls this week from people who were concerned. IT
IS DIRT SIMPLE! Much easier than the Greek Church. Springstep
is directly off I-93 in Medford, Exit 32. It's the building
on the west side of the underpass/rotary. Detailed
Springstep is a fabulous venue, designed in 2003 as
a non-profit "top" dance center, outfitted
with the best sprung wood floors, perfect acoustics,
award winning architectural elegance, and many other
ammenities. It's also professionally managed, so I can
assure everyone the floor will be pristine and the
AC just right. It's right off of I-93/exit 32.

On top of that, the TRAVEL CHANNEL will be in the house
this Friday. They will be filming an episode of what's
hot in Boston, so folks, come on out and "represent"!
It'll be a great chance to get your latest swing-out
moves on national TV. Be sure to pull out your vintage
digs and dress up, 'cause it's gonna be show biz night
at Swing City! We need taxi dancers! more
