THE WOODCHOPPER'S BALL
The Woodchopper's Ball, named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), is a new weekly Tuesday swing dance event held at the beautiful historic Verdi Club in San Francisco. It features an all-ages dance party with a different live band each week and a free basic lesson, beginning and intermediate monthly classes in Lindy Hop and Balboa, a large 2500 square-foot dance floor, and a full bar and lounge (21+ only). Brought to you by Hep Jen and Ken, the long-time regular instructors and organizers at San Francisco’s Lindy in the Park.
$10 Entry includes drop-in basic swing dance lesson. Let's get your non-dancing friends dancing!
