Dear Swing City Patrons!
What a great time we had with Eight
to the Bar at Swingin' New England last Friday! About
250 patrons filled the house early on when I took a
quick count, and Swing City's patrons danced the night
away with all manners of crossover Westies in town for
the weekend. For those that stayed onto Saturday for
Salsa, that too was an amazing night. Thanks to all
that helped out in one way or another, and moreover
everyone that came out to support it. The event will
go on again the second weekend of November, 2011. Look
for Eric's photos in the gallery and facebook.
Week at Swing City:
"White Heat Swing Orchestra" at Huron Ave
"White Heat" is one of New England's classic
swing orchestras and have played the Swing circuit for
years. Regulars at Swing City in the past, the last
time they gigged for us however was one of the final
nights at the Newton location in 2008. We're delighted
to have them back finally.
Also, by popular demand, Daryl Beign is teaching this
Friday for the intermediate level dancers. Read on for
See you this Saturday at the Huron Ave, COLD AC, free
lot parking, drinks, snacks, lessons at 7:45 (read on).
Come join us, meet some new people, get some exercise,
make some new friends, have a great time!
and Intermediate Swing Dance lessons at Swing City
New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries,
we've got something for everyone!
Daryl Beign will be teaching the intermediate
lesson this week and DJing the breaks for you. Karen
Leeds returns to teach the beginner class. Both are
at 7:45. Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to
come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are
concurrent, so you can find a class that suits you and
still bring your friends who might be at a different
level. Plus, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people
if you're new to the scene.
Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venues in town!
- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Full Bar, ~$4 cocktails (at City Club venue only)
- Great Floors (one patron was giddy with excitement
- Easy "T" Access (at City Club venue only)
7:30pm: Beginner and Intermediate
Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until ~12:00am or when people leave
The great thing about the new intermediate lessons
program is that the bulk of our regular dancers will
be able to take a non-beginner class with our
rotation of Boston's top dance instructors, while still
being able to bring beginner friends for the intro lesson.
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 more. The
intermediate class will be different each week. Furthermore,
if either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one
can just switch to the other one as needed.
So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live
music, dancing, affordable cocktails when we're at the
City Club (yes, $4!), lots of cool fun people of all
ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great
night out for only $15 ($10 with college ID), the cheapest
cocktails in town, and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's
official Cheap Date."
