Created by African-American dancers and swing big bands in 1920’s Harlem, the high-flying Lindy Hop’s exuberant, free-wheeling spirit has made it an ever-evolving international phenomenon. Created by four young Lindy Hop stars, Swing Out captures this irresistible genre right now, with 12 superb global performers dancing to a swinging ten-piece Eyal Vilner Big Band playing classics by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Billy Strayhorn, while original music and gender-fluid partnering keep things fresh. Finally, the audience is invited onstage to experience the joy of the Lindy Hop for themselves!

Join us for an after show dance party!

Run Time: 90 minutes with one 20-minute intermission.
