A Night at the Museum: Swing By The Lakeside

Thursday December 7th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm

Put on your dancing shoes and swing on over!

It’s 1945 and the ships are home after Victory in Europe – let’s celebrate! Bring your best jitterbug, lindy hop, turkey trot, Charleston, and bunny hop. Or, just bring yourself and enjoy some music, games, drinks, and food! Got two left feet? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Local Swing Dancers will be joining us to show off their moves, and share some tips and tricks with you! You’ll be swinging in no time!

Costumes are not required, but we’d love to see you all in your best 1940s looks! Prizes will be awarded!
