Alive and Kicking!
In honor and celebration of Frankie Manning Month, we're offering a showing of "Alive and Kicking"! For those who are in the know or have no idea where this thing called "swing" dance came from, we come together as a community to enjoy and experience this 2017 documentary film on the history and continued legacy of swing dancing! Be prepared to be inspired to dance after the film!
Check out the trailer and website: http://aliveandkickingfilm.com/
Feel free to bring snacks to share. Doors open at 6:30pm, showtime at 7:00pm, runtime approx. 90-min., then dancing until 9pm. Donations to cover the rent will be accepted.
We look forward to seeing you there!
