The WOODCHOPPER’S BALL

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 beautiful historic Verdi Club in San Francisco.  It features an all ages Dance Party with a different live band each week and a Basic Drop-In Lesson, Beginning- and Intermediate-level monthly classes in Lindy Hop and Balboa, a large 2500 square-foot dance floor, a full bar and lounge (21+ only), and (new!) delicious, freshly prepared Middle Eastern cuisine!

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