Green Mountain Swing
Last fall, we joined forces with Green Mountain Swing to host a swing dance lesson at their parking lot dance at the College Street Church in Burlington. There was a great turn out and it was alot of fun, so we're doing it again this summer. Some come out out, bring a friend for the intro to swing lesson at 6:30pm and enjoy some dancing in the streets, er, parking lot, with the band from 7-8:30pm.
Street shoes are fine for this one.
Green Mountain Swing is an 18-piece big band based in central Vermont. They play tunes made famous in the swing era of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and many others—hits of the thirties (“In the Mood”, "Puttin' on the Ritz), forties (“Take the A Train"), and fifties (“Satin Doll”). Green Mountain Swing donates all net proceeds to music scholarships for young musicians in central Vermont, helping them with expenses for private lessons and music camps.

Saturday Swing Dance!
We host a Saturday Night Swing Dance on most 2nd Saturdays of every month. Join us for a free, beginner-level mini-lesson from 7:30 - 8:00pm, followed by dancing from 8:00 - 10:30 pm. The Vermont Swings All-Star DJs will keep you moving to great music from jazz, big band and contemporary eras.
Preston Murphy Jazz Band
Former member of Bella and the Notables has put together a new jazz band. They are excited to play for swing dancers.
Red Hot Juba
Red Hot Juba plays Blisterin' Hot Countrified Jazz and Green Mountain Swing. Using a shifting and impulsive mix of styles while carving out an approach all their own, Red Hot Juba can turn from dynamic jump-blues to bittersweet soul on a dime. With a growing reputation for long, high energy sets, the band will cover a broad and varied expanse of musical ground over the course of an evening, and enjoy the sights along the way.
