Put on your dancing shoes for a night of swing dancing, inspired by the Jazz Age exhibitions Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929–1940 and Deco Nights: Evenings in the Jazz Age. The Houston Swing Dance Society invites you on a journey through history with moves from the swing era and live music by Bryan Anthony and the Gentlemen's Club. You are welcome to join in the fun and pick up some new moves of your own.

No partner necessary, and 1930s period attire encouraged! This dance program follows a related talk and performance, “Swingin’ at the Savoy: Dance from the Big Band Era.”
