About the OlyDance Retreat - August 21st
Live Swing Music is back! We are excited to announce The LaVon Hardison Swingtet! LaVon is a professional jazz and pop singer with a smooth, effortless sound and irresistible stage presence. Collaborating with LaVon is Vince Brown (guitar), Brad Schrandt (horn), Steve Luceno (bass) and Maria Joiner Wulf (drums). Get ready for a spirited romp through the roots of swing, jazz, and blues.
Grab your dancing shoes, but also swimsuit, sleeping bag, mountain bike, or even your horse. We have our own camp! Spend the day swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, riding, or dancing around our very own private lake. Partake in Dance workshops! Lindy, Salsa, and Blues. Improve your dancing or add a new style.
