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!

DESSERT CONTEST Enter our $50 Dessert Contest:

Prepare and bring your deletable delicious dessert! Our panel of five judges will choose the best one and you will win one of our trademark custom trophies PLUS a $50 gift card!

p.s. if you want to judge the contest, get in good favor with Sheri who picks the judges that night ;)

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!).

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 either jam style/phrase battle OR 1min-ish spotlight (still TBD by us)
