Dear Swing City Patrons!

First, please accept our--and moreover the City of Cambridge's sincere apologies for the unexpected cancellation of the Racky Thomas dance last Saturday. It was indeed a scheduling error at the City and we have taken steps to assure that it won't happen again.

We have rebooked Racky for our Halloween Party on Oct. 29.

This Week at Swing City: "Eight to the Bar"
SATURDAY at Huron Ave

This Saturday we feature--after quite a hiatus--the renowned "Eight to the Bar"! These guys need no introduction as they are a favorite all around New England. Click the picture for the website. In any case, expect a full house and great dancing all night!

Dance lessons at Swing City

New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries, we've got something for everyone!

Join us for a beginner swing lesson, or if you're a more experienced dancer, we offer a concurrent intermediate class. Classes begin at 8pm promptly, so be sure to arruve a few minutes early.

Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent so most of our regular dancers will be able to take a non-beginner class with our rotation of some of Boston's top dance instructors, yet still bring your friends who might be more comfortable at a the intro level. Moreover, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're new to the scene, single, or just feeling social!

The intro class will be single step East Coast, while the intermediate class will be taught in triple-step and sometimes will include some Lindy and and other styles. The intermediate class will be different each week, selecting from styles that include Lindy, Balboa, Charleston, and more.

If either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one can just switch to the other one as needed.

Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venue in town!

- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Juice, Soda, and Water available, plus snacks
- Great Floor (one patron was memorably giddy with excitement! thx)
- Easy MBTA Access (bus #72 direct from Havard Square)

8:00pm: Beginner and Intermediate Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until 12:00pm

So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live music, dancing, lots of cool fun people of all ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great night out for only $16 ($12 with college ID), and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's official Cheap Date."
