Swing & Soul Event in February

Swing and Soul DanceOn Saturday, February 21, Uptown Swing will be hosting a special Swing & Soul Dance at KI in Brookline. The dance will feature the fabulous Racky Thomas Band and guest DJ Javier Johnson, bringing a great mix of fun get-up-and-dance music.

In addition to Uptown Swing, there will be 2 workshops on Saturday afternoon with Javier to get the Swing & Soul vibe rolling. Workshops will be held at Ruggles Baptist Church on Beacon Street in Boston, not far from the dance location.

  • A. 3:15-4:15pm Diggin’ on James Brown
    Not only a great bandleader, but a superb dancer, James Brown is a huge inspiration. His funky songs have interesting rhythms and influences which go beyond the standard Swing/Blues formula. We’ll learn to dance like James and really get down.
  • B. 4:30-5:30pm Awesome Sauce
    (noun): The thing which transforms average into awesome. This class will show you how to take simple dance movement ingredients and make them into an awesome partnered dance.
