Come on out this Saturday, February 21 to Uptown Swing’s special Swing & Soul Dance, featuring the Racky Thomas Band! Racky loves playing for dancers and is great at keeping a Swing groove to everything played. His delivery has always been “soulful” and for this dance he’ll be reaching into his bag of tricks to add some classic Soul selections.
Guest DJ Javier Johnson will be playing some get-up-and-dance Soul music during the band breaks. Javi is a founding member of the Hartford Underground as well as Hart & Soul, an annual dance weekend event which debuted in September 2013. In addition, he teaches both locally and internationally, and dances with a smooth, joyful, rhythmical style which is always a standout on the dance floor.
The atmosphere at Uptown Swing is fun and friendly and beginners are very welcome! KI is a beautiful large venue with a smooth wood floor and a convenient location on Harvard Street in Brookline (entrance on Williams Street).
Beginners welcome, no partner needed
