DANCE on Saturday the 22nd of June!!
Two DJs at this dance Joe Palmer and guest DJ, Punky McLemore !
First we get started with a Swing Dance basics class from 7:30-8:30PM taught by Joe Palmer…………..Then we swing dance the night away to DJ’d music ! Joe Palmer will get the dance started at 8:30 till 10PM.. Then at 10:15PM, Punky jumps in with her swing music mix. Originally from N.J., she assisted Lets Swing NJ to get started back in 2010. Punky has been living in Hawaii for the past few years. She has DJ’s swing and tango dance events there. Looking forward to that evening of dancing.
Admission $15 which includes refreshments, class and the dance social.
Please note that the wood floor at the VFW was refinished in October and the it has been a more slippery surface than before, so our suggestion is bring two pairs of shoes. One with more grip than the other. .
Always a fun time for all levels and for all ages !
Do ask anyone to dance !
DANCES are at the V.F.W. post in Whippany which has a great wood floor to dance on. This is located at 750 Route 10, Whippany, New Jersey 07981.
