November Uptown Swing Dance with Sax Gordon

Sax GordonOur next Uptown Swing dance is on Saturday, November 19 welcoming back the incredibly awesome Sax Gordon! Gordon is a highly sought out sax player and we always feel fortunate when we can get him on our dance schedule. He plays with an exuberant spirit that seems to take over the room. You will need to dance! If you have never had the opportunity to dance to Gordon and his band, be sure to check him out. You will be glad you did:-)

Also included this month is a Lindy Hop performance with Hop to the Beat! We’ll be Flying Home. We would love for you to come and cheer us on:-)

Uptown Swing is a monthly dance which is held at Brookline Tai Chi, conveniently located directly across from the Washington Square T stop on Beacon Street. It is a wonderful venue with an excellent wood floor for dancing. Street parking is free after 8:00pm. Beginners are very welcome and there is a lesson included at the beginning of the evening to get everyone started. You do not need to have a partner to attend. The music will be excellent for Lindy Hop, Swing, Balboa and even some Blues. Bring your friends and introduce them to a fun night of dancing!
