Somebody just gave me a shower radio. Thanks a lot. Do you really want music in the shower? I guess there’s no better place to dance than a slick surface next to a glass door. Jerry Seinfeld

Find a better place to dance than in your shower this weekend. Swing City is closed this Friday due to another function at the hall. Have a great Mother's Day next Sunday and I hope to see you at Swing City for Cha Cha on May 18th.

New Classes for May are listed on the lessons page. Join us for the Flash Mob this year.
