Dance on Sat, March 30th

Join Retrospect at the Hollywood Ballroom on Saturday, March 30th, with dancing music from 9:00pm until midnight. The Hollywood Ballroom is a hidden gem of a venue in Montgomery County, at 2126 Industrial Pkwy, Silver Spring, Maryland.

We will play our usual variety of dancing music – there will be something for everyone. Those who categorize their music by decades will appreciate dancing to music from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s through today.

Those who categorize their music by dance styles can expect to dance to Swing, Ballroom, Freestyle and Latin. And fabulous deejay Gary Varano will fill the breaks with any dance styles the band might have missed.

Hollywood Ballroom has a 5200 sq ft floating maple dance floor, and they have a full bar with beer, wine and spirits. Plus they have abundant, free, well-lit, safe parking in their own lot. Check out their website here: www.HollywoodBallroomDC.com

Admission is $20 per person at the door. This includes a swing dance lesson at 8:00, and an impressive selection of free refreshments during the dance. And when we say impressive, we mean it. This is NOT the chips and pretzels you’ve come to expect at dances like this. You will be pleasantly surprised!

Doors open before 8:00, the free swing dance lesson starts promptly at 8:00, Retrospect plays at 9:00. There are no reservations, so the best tables are first-come-first-served.

See you at Hollywood Ballroom on Saturday, March 30th!
