Show off your ensemble players’ new skills by inviting students, parents, and the community to a joint big band concert in your auditorium. Your students will experience the Beantown Swing Orchestra in all its glory, while our mentors will see the fruits of their labor in your ensembles’ representing the future of big band music.
Alternatively, invite the student body to a swing dance in your gymnasium, cafeteria, or performance space. We’ll bring a pair of experienced dance instructors to give a group lesson on partner swing as well as line dances that were common during the Swing Era. This social activity provides a wholesome and healthy alternative in an era where electronics and other sedentary activities dominate young adults’ leisure time.
