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 week.

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 Directions »

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. For easy directions, click here.

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 »
