Not 1, but 2, LIVE BANDS

Not 1, but 2, LIVE BANDS

You're not seeing double. We've got TWO great nights of live music coming up for you in the next two weeks. First up, on Saturday, July 29 we're taking over the ballroom at Glen Echo – rather, Dan Levinson and Craig Gildner, are taking over with sweet sounds from their hand-picked all-star musicians.

Levinson is s a NYC-based specialist in traditional jazz and swing who spent 21 years becoming one of the most prolific musicians in the scene today. He'll be headlining a DC crew with our local outstandings including our aforementioned Craig Gildner. It'll be $20 at the door ($15 for students) and we'll even throw in a free lesson at 8 p.m. to get you started with the main show launching at 9 p.m.

Speaking of Tuesdays, we begin a whole new series of classes this week. For everyone who has completed our drop-in and wants to go further, we've got Lindy A. It teaches the fundamental 8-count patterns of Lindy Hop, such as the iconic swing-out and Lindy circle. For Intermediates who have completed Lindy A & B, you'll learn to kick-step your way to more fluency and flash with the Charleston. Be ready for lots of bouncing, lots of kicking, and lots of fun. Both classes are $60 for 4 weeks and – bonus – the dance is included in that price. Yawelcome!

AND FINALLY, on Tuesday, August 1 we are bringing the live jams straight to you at the Jam Cellar with Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five. Mark your calendar and let's make it date.

This Week in Jam:


DJ: Suzanne Ducker!
Beginner Series: Lindy A, START!
Intermediate Series: Charleston, START!

July 29th: Craig Gildner ft. Dan Levinson @ The Spanish Ballroom.
July 29th: Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five @ The Jam Cellar.
