Theme: Pajama Party !

Back by popular demand and more fun than the Annette Funicello movie, it's the much anticipated Swing 'n' Country Pajama Dance Party. Last time we had this a few years ago, it was one of our best attended dances and with the highest participation.  If you were in street clothes, your were in the minority.

Tonight's Pre-Dance Lesson:
West Coast Swing
with Beverly Solazzo

Beginner/Novice Lesson at 7:30 pm
Intermediate Lesson at 8:15 pm

Tonight, Beverly will be teaching West Coast Swing moves so cool and comfortable you can do them in your pajamas.  It's our last lesson of the season and it ends with a blast.  Don't miss Beverly's PJ-WCS.

Dance: 9:00 pm - Midnight
Ken Dillard is our PJ DJ

Ken will not be snoozing tonight nor will he be playing any lullabies.  The house will be rockin' with PJ Dance Music by DJ Ken Dillard.
