Let's Dance! Cabaret SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2022 at 8:00 pm Caboto Centre 1055 Wilkes Avenue
Swing music took the world by storm in the 1930s. Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Chick Webb and Jimmie Lunceford became famous bandleaders and their music dominated the pop charts. Naturally, dancers filled the halls in which these groups performed and high-energy, intricate dances like the Charleston, Lindy Hop, the Jitterbug and Shim Sham were born. Get your dancin' shoes and join the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra for Let's Dance! featuring WINNIPEG SWING DANCE GROUP? as we explore some of the great music from the swing era.
