Event description

Description

Swingaree is a regular swing and jazz social that happens every second and fourth Wednesday of the month.


On Wednesday 28th February, we have a treat for you, as the live band are the Afro City Swingers!

Once upon a time, jazz in South Africa was not a remote elitist art form but was truly the entertainment music of the masses. Township residents danced and partied to the strains of eight to ten-piece bands that served up a dynamic mixture of African melodies and harmonies combined with the instrumentation of the overseas swing bands. Because of Apartheid, much of this music was never heard outside of South Africa.

The event begins at 7pm.
The dance class runs from 8pm - 8:45pm, with the band beginning at 9pm.
This event is free entry, but we do recommend reserving your space to guarantee your place.


There is also a prize for the best dressed at every event, so don your glad rags!



The dance class is ran by the wonderful folk at All That Jazz, who also run regular dance classes should you get the (jitter)bug!
