American Swing presents a swing dance with live music at our famous HALLOWEEN HOP with KING TEDDY in the Spanish Ballroom.

It's Sue and Gary's legendary Halloween Hop in the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park--decorations, costumes, contests, treats, and fun galore. It's worth showing up just to enjoy the outfits!


At the intersection of swing, rockabilly and jump blues is where you'll find KING TEDDY, happily hanging out and humming Beatles tunes. Although their influences are varied (including everyone from Louis Prima to Sam Cooke to Gene Vincent to the afore-mentioned quartet), they are single-minded in their musical mission—to swing, baby!


The dance includes a beginner swing lesson with Sue and Gary from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Band plays two sets, 9:00 pm - 11:45 pm; DJ music 11:45 pm - midnight. Beginners are welcome and no partner is necessary.
