Thursday Night Swing Social


Mainframe Studios Ste. 108, $5 

Free basic lesson from 7:30 - 8:00 pm. 

Dance 8:00-10:00 pm.


Join Step Into Swing every Thursday night downtown at Mainframe Studios for the Thursday Night Swing Social. This event is for all levels. Feel free to come stag, as a couple or with friends. Swing is a social dance and not to be danced with only one partner all the time. Come sit and watch or dance 'til your feet fall off. Swingin' jazz & Rock'n Roll from 1920's to 50's is played throughout the night, and a group basic swing lesson is offered before the dance. Hope to see you there!
