A living dance. A living studio.
A living community.
In our collective mind’s eye, we see a place that is home to a vibrant and continuously evolving swing dance community.
A place where generations meet, relationships are built, energies are exchanged, history is preserved and created anew.
A place where passion for swing dance is born, is nurtured and where people are encouraged to reach new heights of self-expression.
A place where we are kind to ourselves and kind to one another as we evolve and grow.
We see a thriving, socially responsible, sustainable business that provides the opportunities for people to be what they love, according to their abilities, talents and needs. A living dance. A living studio. A living community.
Thursday, June 30th, we are happy to have Emily Estrella’s sextet at Cat’s Corner! In collaboration with a group of veteran instrumentalists, singer Emily Estrella has a sultry, ‘old soul’ voice that evokes the Dixie ghosts of a previous century. Charismatic and joyous, their fine dancing melodies will have you swinging and swooning with a romantic nostalgia reminiscent of a wartime Parisian cafe or a smoky European stage. You’ll be tapping your toes to the robust rhythms as they share their contagious repertoire of traditional and exceptional, acoustic New Orleans Jazz.See all events
