Fans of Brian Setzer Orchestra and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will be happy to know that it looks like swing dancing is due for a comeback. The Arizona Lindy Hop Society formed to create an outlet where new fans of this 1920s and '30s vintage music and dance form could comingle, while hopping, bopping, shimmying, and maybe even showing off an aerial maneuver around the dance floor. The society celebrates the fifth anniversary of its weekly Swing Night in high style with the Solomon Douglas Quartet providing the music. Douglas, also an accomplished swing dancer and instructor, takes that expertise to the bandstand, providing the perfect musical accompaniment for the dancer’s tastes.
The Tuesday, June 11, celebration at the Fatcat Ballroom, 3131 East Thunderbird Road, begins with dance lessons at 7:30 p.m. and dancing at 8:30. Tickets, which include the lessons, are $10 advance or $12 at the door. Visit www.facebook.com/events/569848226379788.
