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 9pm!

Free Lesson We have a free 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!

JACK AND JILL COMPETITION A Jack and Jill Competition full of merriment! It is a guess each year whether I will be able to put together a songlist comprised entirely of holiday music or not (oooh suspense!). You enter as an individual ($3 registration fee) and then have a chance to win your share of awesome trophies and prizes!

Tentative Format:
9:45pm: Prelims: Judged as an individual, rotate and dance with a minimum of three different partners
10:45pm: Finals: Judged as a couple, rotated once for your random dance partner. Will dance 1min-ish spotlight

Glory!! (of course!)
