Celebrate the roots of Swing and Lindy Hop in America—join Swing Out for an all-out dance party on the Northrop stage and plaza! Acclaimed choreographer and rising star Caleb Teicher and friends Eyal Vilner (composer), Evita Arce, Nathan Bugh, LaTasha Barnes, and Macy Sullivan are creating Swing Out to bring the best of swing dance to the stage. This immersive dance party is a culmination of Swing Out’s 2020-21 residency that included a month-long Artistic Exchange, a Solo-Jazz Dance class, a Meet the Artists panel, and a Spotlight Series discussion: Identities and Creative Processes, celebrating the passion and power of the African-American born dance form—the Lindy Hop. Experience the ensemble’s dance and music on stage and then join in a second-act “dance jam” on the Northrop Plaza!

This event will be captioned, with other accessibility services available upon request.
