Swing into spring at a swing dance to live music this weekend on the Upper West Side. The uptempo group City Rhythm Orchestra plays favorites from the 40s and 50s at JCC for the Swing Remix dance party. The $16 admission includes a FREE beginner swing dance lesson at 7:45 PM. The band plays 8:30 to midnight, and there’s a knock-your-socks-off performance by professional swing dancers just before 11 PM, which could be “regular” swing, Lindy hop, Balboa, Jitterbug or shag, which are just some of the versions of swing. This is a fun, friendly crowd with dancers who range from their 20s to their 80s. The JCC is at 334 Amsterdam Ave. at 76th St. Admission is $16. Swing Remix website.
See you on the dance floor!
