Lesson series next month; dance Saturday

Dance Saturday, December 17

It’s Martin Norred’s birthday. And Renee’s is 3 days before! And Avery’s is 3 days after!

Come dance, relax and have a good time as the Corvallis scene is running the show this month at Odd Fellows Hall, 223 SW 2nd. The lesson at 7 p.m. will be “blues for swing dancers,” and dancing is from 8 ’til midnight. Cover is $5-7.

In honor of Martin, we are having a “no trad jazz” swing evening, followed by whatever the swing crew decides is “blues” to finish out the night. Dress up to match our festive decor. [RSVP]

Lesson series: Swing 171

Are you excited to get into the swing scene, and you’re ready for more than intro lessons? Our Swing 171 lesson series starts on Tuesday, January 10.

The series is designed to welcome you into the Corvallis scene and prepare you for events like the Portland Lindy Exchange [Video]. This is the only formal lesson series we are offering this winter season.

Please contact us if you would like to be notified when registration opens. The series will be on Tuesday evenings at Odd Fellows hall, from January 10 through March 13, or ten weeks.

Live music, January 13

The Company B Jazz Band from Vancouver, Canada will be appearing, live and in person, at Odd Fellows Hall on Friday, January 13, 2012.

Friday evening swing and blues

An invitation to swing and blues Fridays.

Distinguished citizens, thank you for building our grand society. Our monthly dances have become a valley destination, with some guests driving 3 hours to swing and blues dance in downtown Corvallis.

We are bringing that atmosphere to Friday evenings in the OSU Women’s Building.

Partnering with OSU Blues, we will be dancing every Friday for the academic year. On Friday, September 30 there will be a swing dance [RSVP]. On Friday, October 7, there will be a blues dance [RSVP].

We will continue this pattern through May. On Fridays before a dance downtown, we will have a workshop, lab, or something fun.

Every Friday will start with a lesson at 8 p.m., dancing starting at 9 p.m. Cover will be $5.

Upcoming events

  • Sept 30: First Friday dance at OSU. Swing.
  • Oct 7: Second Friday dance at OSU. Blues.
  • Oct 14: Swing workshop at OSU.
