Dear Swing City Patrons,
Sheer's Swingin' All Stars" this Saturday!
We're delighted to bring you this "new" band
at Swing City. It's really not new, it's a collaboration
between some of the stars of Swing City's most popular
bands, including Eddie Sheer, leader of the Love Dogs,
on vocals, Rick Russell on guitar, and Scott Shetler.
In other words, all these guys know Swing and what the
dancers are looking for, so check it out!
Also, Katie is back in town, so there is a Lindy lesson
this week. More on that below.
And as usual, Mike's "famous" free, fresh,
Hope to see you there!

"The Jitterbug Stroll and Solo Movement" with
The Jitterbug Stroll is a swing line dance choreographed
in 1992 by Ryan Francois, a Lindy Hop dancer and teacher.
It is often danced socially by Lindy Hoppers, much like
the Shim Sham! In this workshop, you will learn the
Jitterbug Stroll in the first hour and then spend the
second hour working on the quality of movement in your
jazz steps! This is a solo jazz class. No partner needed.
No experience required. See you there!

When: Saturday, May 23 6pm-8pm

City with Paolo and Katie in the house from 9pm on.

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
The intro class will be single step East Coast, while
the intermediate class generally assumes you can dance
a triple step and are comfortable with a variety of
basic moves. The intermediate class is different each
week, generally Charleston. We sometimes features guest
If either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one
can just switch to the other one as needed.
