Join Sylwia and Adrian from Cat’s Corner swing dance school for this dance event featuring an introduction to swing and blues dancing, followed by a whirl around the dance floor as you practice your steps to the sounds of Emily Estrella and a group of seasoned musicians.

This evening of swing and blues will be the perfect occasion to learn about jazz-style dancing—and to give it a try! You’ll also have an opportunity to move to the music of Emily Estrella as she performs her traditional acoustic folk-jazz repertoire. You’re invited to take the lesson, on your own or with a partner from your family bubble.

Two performances will take place during the evening; the first at 7:00 p.m. and the second at 8:45 p.m.
