DJ Night with DJs Andrew Selzer & Stan Yen

Category: dances


Join us for a swing dance this Friday on the very last day of September! No experience necessary, no partner required. DJs Stan Yen and TBA will be spinning some tunes for us. This dance will also be extra Balboa friendly (since we have some Bal folks visiting from out of town, if you’re not familiar with Balboa or Bal, then you’ll see it and there will be a lot of songs where one can dance swing, lindy or Balboa). See you there!

First Set: Andrew Selzer
Andrew Selzer started DJing for weekly dances in the college town of State College, Pennsylvania; but these days he hails from Boston, Massachusetts. With over five years of experience dancing Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, and Balboa all over the globe from Paris, France to New Orleans, Louisiana he brings to the table music true to the swing era that appeals to the international swing dance community.

Second Set: Stan Yen
Although he started swing dancing in 1997, Stan can still remember being captivated by Duke Ellington’s East St. Louis Toodle-Oo and Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue in a college class almost 10 years earlier. He started DJing out of necessity in 2010 when he and his wife, July, decided to grow the Balboa scene in the Boston area and needed to provide music for practices. Since then, he’s DJ’d locally at MNP, Uptown Swing and the BBJ in Providence while continuing to be the “House DJ” for Boston Balboa’s regular events. Recently, he was also the strictly competition and post-band DJ at the Great Lakes Balboa Escape in Chicago.

He has a thing for xylophones and songs about food or with unusual lyrics. He likes to stick with artists from the original Swing Era (with a particular fondness for the late 1930s), but that hasn’t stopped him from occasionally playing more contemporary songs so long as they make him want to dance — he hopes they’ll make you want to dance too.
