If learning how to swing dance is on your Christmas list this year, be sure to check out Groove Juice Swing's 6th Annual Red Hot Holiday Ball on Friday, December 14. The holiday event, which runs 7-11 p.m., will be catered toward new swing dancers in the community. Along with free admission, you'll also receive a free beginner lesson, snacks, and plenty of holiday cheer. After one lesson, you may find yourself in need of new dancing equipment. Fortunately, a raffle will feature gifts and certificates from local swing-dance organizations, South Wedge businesses, local musical artists, and more.
No partner or experience is necessary. If you're feeling particularly spirited and in the giving mood, feel free to bring some baked goods to share. Amid dancing the night away, you'll also have the opportunity to watch debut performances from Groove Juice Swing, and Rochester's new all-girl dance troupe, The Flower City Follies.
Tango Café Dance Studio (3rd Floor Ballroom) is located at 389 Gregory St. For more information visit groovejuiceswing.com.
