Saturday, Feb. 4at Huron Ave:
White Heat Swing Orchestra
This long-time hot 14-piece big band swing orchestra was named “Boston's Best Dance Band” by Boston Magazine. These musicians recorded the soundtrack to the movie Dick Tracy on the Warner Brothers label, and have performed in concert with Cab Calloway, Tony Bennett, Lou Rawls, and Joel Grey. Come see the group that rocked Boston’s Roxy nightclub as its house swing band for 5 years and has gigged for the Clintons!

Featuring:
- Beginner

(see below for more details about the lessons)

Dear Swing City Patrons!

The Heat is on Tonight with "White Heat Swing Orchestra!"

White Heat Swing Orchestra has been a regular at Swing City since its inception over 15 years ago, and they always draw a great dancing crowd. Recall this is the band that gigged regularly down on Rowes Wharf at the popular dance nights on the waterfront up until a couple years ago when the hotel discontinued that venue. Don't miss them at this rare Swing City appearance!

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)
