About the evening dance

The swing era is all about dancing. The music and the dance are absolutely inseparable. Think flapper dresses and Charleston, think magnificent big bands or big dancefloors of Harlem.
With thirteen heads and counting, the impressive Capital Dance Orchestra will keep you far, far away from your chairs.
As well as the big band, we have a bunch of fantastic DJs who will play the best of vintage and electro-swing music, making sure our footloose dancers stay up all night long.
