Friday Night Swing Dance Club
How cool is this???

We are so excited to be heading back to one of the venues where it all began for us nearly 20 years ago, swingin' out with Chuck Alexander and the Friday Night Swing Dance Club! Join us for a great evening of nostalgia as all the cool cats join in at the Towson American Legion's big, beautiful, unobstructed, air-conditioned 9,500 square foot ballroom.

Don't have a partner? No worries! There will be plenty of friendly singles to dance with and most couples also rotate dance partners. This is a DANCE night, not a date night!

And, it gets better because it's Prom Night! Wear your ugliest prom attire and you could win prizes! Time to break out that baby blue tuxedo or treasured "one-of-a-kind" bridesmaid gown you found in the attic! More fun than your high school prom - no hormones, no drama (and you probably won't get carded at the Legion's dowstairs bar)! This is a FNSDC tradition and is always a big hit.

We will play all 20 songs from our upcoming 20th anniversary CD as well as many of our dance favorites. All tempos and styles for any level of dancing!

Plus, you could win a free 3-hour performance from the band! Seriously!!!

See you there!
