Sat 4/28 @ 8PM-midnight
Get Hep Swing has been feet-foremost behind the swing revival and Lindy hop dance movement. April marks the troupe’s biggest night of dance lessons and fun — the prom that you either weren’t cool enough to be invited to, or too cool to go. Until now.
Be at the Slovenian Workmen’s Home on Waterloo Road. Visitors can come in whatever prom getup they like, and Get Hep founder/dance mistress Valerie Salstrom will teach an intro session for the first hour, with dancers of all skill levels welcome.
At 9pm the prom starts in earnest, with live music from the swing orchestra Red Light Roxy, a cash bar (stocking the Slovenian beer favorite Lasko), snacks, and all the dancing you can take right up until midnight.
Tickets are $12 at the door.
