Dear Swing City Patrons,

Celebrate summer with "Joshua Fialkoff and the Odd Fellows" this Saturday

Please join us for a fun night of dancing. It's a special night so there won't be an intro lesson. We are co-hosting a blues night with Sweet Molasses Blues. It's not swing but it's a good substitue. Work on your close partner dancing to some great blues music. Maybe try a ballroom move or two. Note we ecpect over 200 dancers and there will be performances from some expert blues dancers. Finish the summer at Swing City up with a bang on a fun packed night!

See you there!

Just a reminder, please bring friends to Swing City! It's not only great fun for all to meet new people, but vital to Swing City and the whole Boston/New England swing dance scene. The "word of mouth" approach from our regular and occasional dancers is by far the most effective way to get the word out.

Hope to see you there!
