TasSwing Easter Ball – March 31

418677_2333434154100_1797194671_1431040_987195923_nTo make up for all the social dancing we lost in 2020, we’ve decided to have an Easter Ball in 2021 – and we’ve invited the Southern Lights Orchestra to provide the music!  You might remember them from the Christmas Party…

Just like with the Christmas Party, we’ll be holding the ball at the Polish Hall, and running a half hour beginners class at 6:30pm, followed by the orchestra at 7:00pm.

Cost is $25.

Sweet, Sweet Swing in 2021

Dancing on FireWe’ve decided to shake things up a bit in 2021 and run Sweet, Sweet Swing on the FIRST Sunday of each month, so that means you can get your first dose of social dancing with TasSwing on Sunday, February 7.

Republic Bar and Cafe (Upstairs), 4-6pm, two hours of fabulous DJ music!  Cost is $10.

Stay for dinner afterwards (the Republic has half price meals on Sundays).

That’s it for 2020!

teachers brickThanks for dancing with us in 2020, but that’s all she wrote for the year, folks!

We’ll be back in 2021 – Wednesday classes will resume on the first Wednesday in February, but if you’re really hankering for a dance, Tuesday classes will run throughout January if numbers permit – contact Barry if you’re interested!

Otherwise, thanks for dancing with us in what has been a difficult year, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

(PS – keep an eye out for a January social dancing announcement soon!)

Well, check out these videos below to see a great performance of the Lindy Chorus for Frankie 100! (note the videos are the same, one of them is just in sepia, if you prefer that old time look…)
