Get ready to party like it's 1929 as you join fellow WGBH supporters for an evening of swing dancing to live tunes performed by Brooklyn's own Baby Soda Jazz Band. You can get into the swing of things with an optional one-hour beginners' lesson from Boston Swing Central. Then, it's time to dance the night away, but don't worry -- no experience or partner is required. You'll have a blast while learning about the history and culture of swing dancing from experts who'll demonstrate how the style has evolved. Seasoned dancers can even take part in a Charleston contest. Learn More

The Spirit of Tribal dance event will combine one of the best known professional performers of American Belly Dance with performances by some of the best local belly dance solo dancers and troupes.
Headlining the evening will be Carolena Nericcio, the founder of San Francisco-based Fat Chance Belly Dance who is also credited as the creator of American Tribal Style, a unique and beautiful improvisational dance style that draws upon Egyptian, Turkish, Spanish and Indian traditions. Although she regularly performs across the US and internationally, this will be Carolena’s first time performing in Boston. She will be dancing with Megha Gavin of Devyani Dance Company based in Alabama.
The show will include performances covering a variety of the hottest and most exciting styles of dance – American Tribal style, Tribal Fusion, and Flamenco by both local and national dancers. OmBellyCo, the Boston based American tribal style (ATS) belly dance troupe hosting the event, will perform along with a host of the best local Belly Dancers and troupes in traditional, fusion and improvisational styles.
