Sat 11/30 @ 7:45PM
Perhaps you over-ate on Thanksgiving, and then scarfed up leftovers the next day. What you need to do on Saturday is head over to the Lithuanian Club in North Collinwood for Get Hep Swing’s Friendsgiving swing dance to burn off some calories.
You don’t have to know how to dance or have a partner, and you certainly don’t have to be Lithuanian. Just bring yourself in some comfortable shoes and join in the fun that’s as much about socializing and meeting new people as about dancing.
As they say in their promotion, “We welcome anyone to join us who has an interest in dance, music, socializing and fun. We don’t care what your physical ability or size is, where you are in life, where you are on the spectrum of sexual or gender orientation, what color or creed, or non-creed, you are. Are you a man who wants to learn how to follow or a woman who wants to learn how to lead? That’s cool! This idea is not new to the swing dance scene. We are the easiest club to join. If you have an interest, you are in. “
Anyway, there’s a lesson from 8-9 to teach newcomers the basics of jitterbug and give old hands a chance to brush up and help out the novices — no one’s going to make fun of you. Then from 9pm-midight, there’s dancing to live music by Cleveland’s Blues Deville.
Admission is $12, and you don’t need to buy tickets in advance.
