A local non-profit dance organization is gearing up for their 2nd Annual Swing Fling coming up on March 2nd.
The Evansville River City Bop Club says last year's First Annual River City Swing Fling was a great success. They say they had over 160 dancers from all over the Tri-State area participate in the workshops and dance. And this year's Swing Fling is even bigger and better.
The group's chairperson says the event will take place at the VFW Post 1114. This year's event will feature professional dancers Matt and Crystal Auclair. Matt is a 6 time National Swing Champion and Crystal has won numerous divisions across the nation. Matt and Crystal will conduct workshops on Saturday, March 2 and will perform a Demo Dance Saturday night at 8:30.
The group's officials also say they have added a Friday Night Dance Party to the event. The dance begins at 7:00 p.m. on March 1 at the VFW and the public is welcome to attend. The cost at the door for the dance only is $5.
On Saturday, they say there will be four workshops taught by the Auclairs with the first beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday night will conclude with another dance party beginning at 7:00 p.m.
An early bird special is going on until January 31 and those tickets are $30 per person (which includes the dances on Friday and Saturday night, as well as the workshops on Saturday). After January 31, tickets are $35 per person.
If you are interested in dancing with the group on a regular basis, they meet every Wednesday night at the Eagles FOE 427 at 7:00 p.m. with a dance lesson beginning at 7:15 and open dancing until 10:00 p.m.
