LIVE MUSIC LIVE! Jonathan Stout and his Campus Five featuring Hilary Alexander

As is our tradition we bring out one of the nation’s best swing bands to dance to (fortunately they are based right here in Los Angeles!). It’s Jonathan Stout and his Campus Five featuring the fabulous Hilary Alexander. When these guys play, every song is a good song to dance to or even just watch and listen! (Fancy that, Lindy Hoppers!).

Campus Five will start at 9:30pm promptly after the Jack and Jill prelims are over!

Free Lesson We have a complimentary lesson at 8pm to 8:40pm appropriate for the new beginner to the intermediate dancer! Come join us!

Lovingly brought to you by Roy and Jasmine

Free Dance Lesson from total newbie to enthusiastic intermediate!
