American Swing presents a swing dance with live music in the Spanish Ballroom.


Swing. Jump Blues. Vintage Lounge. Boogie Woogie. Formed in 2017, The Alpha Rhythm Kings have created quite a stir with music fans, having crafted an exciting California sound, with what Roots Music Magazine No Depression calls "the badge of authenticity." The band's top quality musicians, with Robert Dehlinger's blazing trumpet and "magnetic" singing (Jazz Corner) leading the way, are a favorite with swing dancers. Their debut recording, "California Boogie," featuring their exciting original arrangement of "Oh Marie," is a "truly happening party record" (Jazz Corner), and one of the "greatest swingin' releases worldwide" (Hey Mister Jesse).


The dance includes a beginner swing lesson with Tom & Debra 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.
