Upcoming Dances

Lots of great dancing coming up in the Boston area!

Uptown Swing Dance

Our next monthly Uptown Swing Dance will be on Saturday, May 21 at our wonderful venue, Brookline Tai Chi. We’ll be welcoming back the Racky Thomas Band for a fun night of dancing, always an Uptown Swing favorite!

This month our Shim Sham will be a special one because we’ll be doing it for Frankie Manning! It has been over 2 years now since we lost this wonderful man shortly before his 95th birthday. In addition, $1 of each admission will be donated to the Frankie Manning Legacy Fund and there will be a donation box for anyone wanting to make an additional tax-deductible contribution (by cash or check).

The mission of the Frankie Manning Legacy Fund is to preserve and promote the rich cultural, choreographic and artistic legacy of Frankie Manning and to encourage the world-wide proliferation and promotion of the music and the dance Frankie loved so much (Swing music and Lindy Hop).

Saturday brings the monthly Boston Swing Dance Network dance in Watertown. This is Boston’s largest and longest running Swing dance and is always a good time. This month features Dom V and the Swing Out Big Band. That’s a lot of band! For info: www.BostonSwingDance.com
