Upcoming SwingCville Events
This Saturday: Solo Jazz Workshop and Savoy
January 27th, The Dance Spot, $10 for the dance only, $25 for workshop (dance included). Find times via the FB events and swingcville.org
Kyle Kelley is coming to Charlottesville to teach a brand new solo jazz routine! If you’ve never done solo jazz, I highly recommend it not only because 1. it is super fun but 2. it also helps you with your partner dancing! Yay body awareness! Plus, the dance afterwards is included.
Also This Saturday: Dance to Zuzu’s Hot 5 at Hardywood Brewery
January 27th, Hardywood Pilot Brewery and Taproom, 7-10pm, free (I think)
One of our favorite local swing bands is playing at Hardywood, and there’s no age restriction! It also looks like there’s a new cover charge, so come enjoy!
This Wednesday: Lindy Tempo Extremes Workshop
January 31st, 7pm, The Front Porch, $5
You know when a song gets too fast or too slow for your comfort? Learn how to dance to those fringe songs so you don’t have to stop dancing! Sign up to give rides or get rides here!
