“4th Saturday” Swing Dances at Glen Echo

International Jitterbug Champions Tom Koerner and Debra Sternberg lead a one-hour Swing/Lindy workshop before each dance.  The workshop with Tom & Debra goes from 8 until 9, then the TCO swings out from 9 until midnight.  The historic Spanish Ballroom, with its sprung-wood dance floor, is located in Glen Echo Park, 7300 MacArthur Boulevard, Glen Echo, MD, 20812.  This is generally a large event, so don’t be surprised if you’re asked to park in overflow parking on the grass.

Our price of admission is $18 for adults, $10 for kids 5 – 13 years old and kids 4 and under are free.

Call the park at (301) 634-2222 or call Tom at (703) 533-8864, or you can email info@glenechopark.org or contact us for more information.

All dances are in cooperation with Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture Inc., the National Park Service and Montgomery County, Maryland.
