Dirty Water (Friday late night) | DJs TBA

Join us for a late night of dancing and our Any Swing Goes contest (optional, of courses)!

“Any Swing Goes” contest: Open to anyone attending the late night! (No entrance fee.) Dancers will be judged based on what they do with what they get. Partner is Luck of the Draw. This is an Any Swing Goes competition so it will not specifically be Lindy Hop or Blues. What it will be is fun…so be prepared to get musically stretched out of your dancing comfort zone and we’ll see what you movers and groovers can come up with on the fly.

Swing Dancing: 12:00am – 2:00am
General Admission: $10
Students and Seniors (with Valid ID): $6
