Fun and upbeat, Brooklyn’s The Bailsmen play Gypsy Jazz and Vintage Swing. Their sound is straight from New York by way of New Orleans and Paris, nodding to Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. Classics and originals are all given a fresh spin by these young musicians - just try to keep off the dance floor. The Bailsmen are Abraham Pollack, bass; Brandon Vetrano, guitar; Charlie Castelluzzo, guitar; and Gabriel Yonkler, sax. Find them on Spotify and at www.thebailsmen.com.

7 pm: Beginning Balboa w/ Melissa & Franklin
Beginning Balboa from March is continuing into the first two weeks of April! Are you Curious about Balboa? Need to brush up on moves you learned last Summer at Blue Ridge Bal? Then this class is for you! We'll be delving into what makes Balboa our favorite dance- comfy connections, quick turns, and fancy footwork. First class comes on the heels of our teacher training with David Rehm in Huntsville so the approach will be fresh and polished. No experience necessary, no partner required, drop ins welcome. $10/person, $8 for Swing Asheville members.

8 pm: Beginning Lindy Hop w/ Sparrow & Keith
Come learn the basics of swing! More information coming soon. No dance experience or partner needed!

This is part of the 'Jazz N Justice' night- every month our dance will be supporting a different non-profit organization, and 10% of the bar sales + your donations to straight to them. This month's non profit is Appalachian Wild. Appalachian Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit that coordinates the needs of wildlife rehabilitation in Western North Carolina providing care for injured and orphaned wildlife, support for the wildlife rehabilitation network and conservation education to the community. ***
