Dear Swing City Patrons,

"Racky Thomas Band" this Saturday, plus Pi Day!!

This Saturday is "Pi Day" and we feature the every popular "Racky Thomas Band."

"Pi Day" you ask? Maybe you heard? Yes, it's 3/14/15, and just before 9:26:54, Professor Mike will give a brief lecture on trigonometry.

No, Just Kidding!

BUT! We are offering the "Pi Day Pie Potluck Special!"

Bring a pie and get 23!

That is...

$2 off admission, and 2 free $2 drinks.

That's a $6 value, which is just a little less than 2 pi. Yes, all this math is geeky. Mike is very sorry.

So got it? Bring a pie, any pie, get $2 off cover and two free drinks. We'll supply plates and forks.

In the meantime while everyone is muching on pi pie, Racky and his band will be keeping the crowd hopping with their masterfully swingin' sounds!

Hope to see you there!

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 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 instructors.

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