The Woodchopper’s Ball, named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit), is a new weekly Tuesday swing dance event held at the Verdi Club in San Francisco.  It features a dance party with a different live band each week and a free basic lesson, beginning and intermediate monthly classes in Lindy Hop and Balboa, a large 2500 square-foot dance floor, and a full bar and lounge.  Everything a swing dancer could wish for!  And all that at the beautiful historic Verdi Club!

Brought to you by Hep Jen and Ken Watanabe, the long-time regular instructors and organizers at San Francisco’s Lindy in the Park.
