RITZ BALLROOM SWING DANCE SOCIETY

     The new RITZ BALLROOM SWING DANCE SOCIEY cordially invites you to a kick-off event at NYC’s historic art dco dance palace, the Edison Ballroom, on Friday, September 20. A luxury chartered motor-coach with DVD and musical entertainment and restroom facility will whisk you and like-minded guests to Manhattan for an evening of gourmet dining, open bar, and dancing to the Joe Battaglia NY Big Band. This orchestra was featured for many years as the house band at such prestigious New York City venues as The Rainbow Room and                         Tavern On The Green. 








     The all-inclusive discounted price for this journey back to the elegance of another era, without the inconvenience and cost of gas, tolls, parking or even a designated driver, is only $175 per person. Imagine… a dressed up Big Apple evening of dining, drinking, dancing and dozing on the way home…all for little more than the cost of NYC parking, gas and tolls alone!










     Swing dancing, currently popular once again throughout the world especially by young enthusiasts, has long been of interest to those who seek social comradery and fun along with active, healthy exercise to stay fit. Veteran dancers who went to the Ritz Ballroom as teen and twenty-year-olds still remember the swing music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman, while current, young contemporary dancers, now enjoy the swing music of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and the Squirrel Nut Zippers.












     Why not gather several other couples to make a table and together enjoy an early holiday season autumn night out that will be long remembered! For more information or reservations call Jeffrey Williams at 203-726-7348 or go to the SWING! page on our www.attheritz.org website.
