Celebrate the resilience of a community in struggle through swing music and dance! This multi-part program will explore the impact of swing music and dance on youth in America’s concentration camps through personal storytelling, history, and dancing.

Join for a social swing dance with live music from The Fabulous Esquires Big Band and opportunities for all to be a part of the experience. Rusty Frank will lead a dance lesson for those of any dance experience, followed by an afternoon of popular tunes from the 1940s and a chance for all generations to connect through immersive history.

Please note that these tickets are for the DANCE portion of the program only. Sign up for the Conversation with WWII Concentration Camp Survivors at 12 p.m. at this link.
Please note that tickets to each part of the event are sold and priced separately. Contact with any questions regarding ticketing.
