Sunday May 20 Central Ohio Hot Jazz!

Finish out your weekend with some awesome hot jazz presented by our sister organization, the Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society! The COHJS is bringing the Dave Kosmyna’s Original Downhome Jazz Band to the Clintonville Woman’s Club. This Toledo area band will perform while you dance or just listen to their music.

Dancers, since hot jazz songs tend to run long, we suggest jumping onto the dance floor a minute or two into the song. This also allows the listening-only audience a chance to watch the band members work their instrumental magic. Please note the floor is small. Keep your dance movements small, watch out for each other and dancers who use the “line of dance” around the edge of the floor, and apologize if you bump into someone.

BYOB, hot food, snacks, soft drinks and coffee available for purchase.

Clintonville Woman’s Club
3951 North High St, Columbus, OH 43214

ADMISSION Pay at the door
COHJS members: $15
General public: $20
Swing dancers: $10
Music students / educators: FREE

Team SwingColumbus performs at Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society

Hey there swing dancers!

Quick reminder that Team SwingColumbus will be performing TODAY March 18 at the Clintonville Woman’s Club. We believe the performance is slotted for around 3 PM, during Ragtime Rick & the Chefs of Dixieland band break. Thank you to the Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society for hosting our competition team, and giving our dancers another rehearsal before competing in Knoxville next weekend!

If you missed the February performance in Dayton, this is your opportunity to see a choreographed routine that is mostly Charleston. This is a high energy routine with A LOT of dancers, our largest team ever! Expand your horizons and cheer on your fellow dancers!

The remainder of the dance is BYOB, and we suggest (since the songs this band plays are on the longer side) to jump onto the dance floor a minute or two into the song.

Sunday March 18, 2018 2 PM – 5 PM
Hosted by Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society
Clintonville Woman’s Club
3951 N High St, Columbus, Ohio 43214

Special performance by Team SwingColumbus around 3 PM
Admission: $10 for dancers
