Return of the LIVE BAND Red or Black Valentine's Dance! Ft. Craig Gildner | Philly Lindy Hop & Swing


Thu Feb 09 2023 at 08:00 pm to 11:00 pm


Philadelphia Ethical Society | Philadelphia, PA

It's the return of everyone's favorite event, the "Red or Black?" Valentine's Swing Dance! If you're pro-Valentine's day bust out those red threads, and if you think it's all just a corporate scam then bring out the black clothes, and get ready to swing out to the LIVE MUSIC of the the Craig Gildner trio!
As always, no partner or experience necessary! We'll have a fun photobooth and some Valentines to share around.
Here at Jazz Attack, where Lindy Hop History is Black history, every month is Black History Month. We want to share that knowledge far and wide, and as such all lessons this month will be centered around Black history & Lindy Hop / Jazz, and they will all be FREE / pay what you want with admission! All DJ sets will also be themed after Black artists of the swing era through today.
Check out all the details below!
