Festivus Party and Steven's Last Dance

  • Avalon Ballroom 6185 Arapahoe Rd Boulder, CO, 80303 United States (map)

Come get your swing fix this Tuesday at our annual Festivus dance. This will also be Stephen Newcomb’s last dance at Boulder Swing, so come wish him well. There will be our standard lessons, a performance, DJ’ed music, as well as the traditional airing of grievances and feats of strength. The wearing of ugly sweaters is strongly encouraged. 

Stephen has been teaching with Boulder Swing Dance for six years, and a part owner for five. In order to make time for other commitments in his life, he is stepping down from active teaching. In the new year he will not be around at our weekly classes and dances, but instead will be focusing on much of the behind-the-scenes work that is important to the functioning of Boulder Swing. This dance is a way to say thanks to Stephen for all of the hard work, time, and effort he has poured into the community over the years. Come out and help us celebrate Stephen beginning a new phase of his life. 

This will be the last Tuesday dance we hold. Starting in January we will be moving our dance, Flatiron Stomp, to Monday nights.

Lessons run from 7:30-8:30pm. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you will not be able to take the lesson. DJ’ed music from 8:30-10:30pm.
