Join us for the St. Claude Social, our weekly New Orleans Swing Dance night!

7:30 - 8:30, $5 Introductory Lesson with Giselle Anguizola
8:30 - 11:00, $10 Social Dance featuring Giselle and her Swingin' Three
St. Claude Social is a BYOB event.
Note: The club is very small but lots of fun!

Before and/or after St Claude Social head to...

FRENCHMEN STREET!
Be respectful of clubs. You MUST purchase drinks or food to hang out in any establisment on Frenchmen St. for any amount of time. Even if you hang out and listen to or dance to one song and then leave, you must give to the club in some way. It is the way of our culture here in New Orleans.
Tip the bands. Tip bartenders. Buy CDs. Buy drinks. Swing out ONLY if its feels appropriate and there is space. Don't forget, these clubs don't just have lindy hoppers in them. Be aware of your surroundings. Make space for all! Most importantly, have fun! <3
