SWINGIN' AT WESTMINSTER:
A NIGHT OF MUSIC AND DANCING
FREE beginner Lesson at 7:30pm, Music at 8pm
Westminster Performing Arts Series | May 19, 2023
Westminster’s Performing Arts Series features a fascinating array of music and dance. By celebrating artists and connecting them more closely with the community, the Series extends Westminster’s telling presence in the city and invites people to experience the beauty of the arts.
Parking is free in the underground Westminster Parking Garage for ticket holders to a Performing Arts Series event. Entrance to the parking structure is off Alice Rainville Place (13th St) between Nicollet Mall and Marquette Avenue.
We are SO excited for the big dance we have coming up next week. We will be at the BEAUTIFUL Westminster Ballroom for a dance that is perfect for Lindy Hoppers and friends and family alike.
The dancing begins at 8pm preceded by a FREE beginner lesson at 7:30pm so this is the perfect time to bring some pals who would like to try out dancing for a night. There is discounted pricing for youth so kids are welcome and for anyone who needs it there is a pay-what-you-can option at the door - so there is no excuse not to join us for an amazing evening of dancing and fun!

Westminster will have snacks & treats on hand for those more inclined to hang and watch the festivities and perhaps most important of all they have an amazing FREE underground parking lot on site, making getting there super safe and convenient!
We’ve heard from lots of folks who are planning on coming out and we expect this to be quite the dancing reunion so don’t miss this chance to dance in such a lovely space with all your swing pals new and old!
