Event Details

Swing Dance Night at the ARTfactory!  Join us for a night of lively Big Band music and fun. The ARTfactory is the perfect venue for swing dance!  We are located in the historic Hopkins Candy Factory building, and our ballroom features a premium “floating” wood dance floor.  Joe Manning will teach  a 30-minute lesson starting at 7:30 pm — learn East Coast Swing Dance moves like the jitterbug and the Lindy Hop!  Don your best vintage attire and enter our costume contest at 8:30pm.  Our DJ Eli will spin big band classics all night until 10:30pm.  Light snacks included, raffle items available!

This is a FUNdraiser!  All proceeds go to support the ARTfactory’s wonderful Pied Piper Theatre Set Shop — the essential space where we build magical settings for our theatrical productions.  Help us continue to create expansive set designs for our renowned performances!
