Want to learn to dance? Attending the 1940’s Ball and want to cut a rug? Boulder Swing Dance is offering a three-hour boot camp that will have you swing cadets jitterbugging like cool cats lickety-split! No partner needed.

Swing dancing swept through dance halls and living rooms through out the country in the 1930s and 1940s.
