Next Classes, Dance and Shim Sham!

We would like to thank everyone for joining us at Uptown Swing this past Saturday. Racky Thomas gave us another fun night of dancing. The night was filled with emotion for us, thinking of Frankie Manning and also my Dad. We had a room full of Shim Shammers and raised $200 for the Frankie Manning Fund. I would also like to send out my heartfelt thanks for all the kind words, cards and hugs. It means a lot to both me and Tony. As someone mentioned, we were in the company of our other family:-)

Our next Uptown Swing dance comes early in the month, June 4th with the Mike DiBari Swingtet. This will be our last dance before Beantown Camp and we hope you will join us for another wonderful night!
