    The George Gee Swing Orchestra

Dance Instructor: Jaime Shannon and Tony Fraser teach Collegiate Shag

DJ: Adam Lee

Who’s the heppest? Will it be New York favorite, George Gee, who brings his Chick Webb–inspired 12-piece combo to defend the heritage of the Savoy Ballroom? Or will it be left coast darlings Dean Mora and his Modern Rhythmists, representing Los Angeles’s mid-’60s Palomar Ballroom with its Roaring ‘20s take on swing and its focus on period arrangements? Dress in your red, white, and blue vintage finest for an intermission fashion contest.

As this is a dance event, there is no seating.
