live music: Vendredi's Bag
Our very first LIVE swing band at Tuesday Swing since the shutdown. We plan on dressing up (wear what you can). Vendredi's Bag comprises a group of musicians who love Django and Jobim right along with Irving and Miles. Throw in some Eddie Harris and Dr. John and you have a good sense of what their bag is all about. They draw songs from across continents and ages, incorporating jazz standards, Latin grooves, bebop, R&B, acoustic funk, and gypsy swing into their performances. The group is based in Olympia, WA.
"I still see dance as a huge gift. As my first teacher, I always credit you for opening up my world to dance by creating an environment where it felt fun and possible. I know I’m never going to be the most coordinated or strongest dancer on the dance floor, but for me it has never been about that. It just feels healthy! I’ll always be grateful."
New to dancing? or new to swing? afraid you have two left feet? This short class will show you the basics and prove that dance is for everyone!
No partner required.
Come a little before 7pm!
