GottaSwing Charlotte is excited to welcome back Ethan Uslan, who will be performing exclusively for our dancers on the evening of April 20th.

​Ethan Uslan is a ragtime/jazz pianist and a 3-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest (yes - that really exists!). He has performed all over the USA, Europe, and Cyberspace, where his jazzed-up Für Elise has gone viral.

His concerts are filled with passion, humor, virtuosity, and a deep love for America's rich musical past. His vast repertoire includes original arrangements of Civil-War era songs, New Orleans Jazz, 1920s Charlestons, blues, stomps, Harlem stride piano, swing, Cuban rumbas, jazzed-up versions of classical masterpieces, and one Hawaiian song called Yaaka Hula Hickey Dula.

Ethan is also the host and master raconteur for a podcast, "The Carolina Shout" which is available for free on iTunes and at other podcast purveyors.

Doors open at 7 pm and there will be an Introduction to Swing Dancing lesson from 7:30 to 8:30. Ethan takes the stage at 8:30. No dance experience or dedicated partner needed for the lesson or the social dancing. We look forward to dancing with you!
