London's JIVE ACES at the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park, Glen Echo

  • Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park 7300 Macarthur Boulevard Northwest Glen Echo, MD, 20812 United States (map)

Beginner swing lesson with Tom and Debra 8-8:30pm, dance 8:30-11pm.
Admission $20 at the door, general admission only (THERE ARE NO TICKET PRE-SALES FOR THIS EVENT). Carpooling is always recommended at Glen Echo.

We are soooooo lucky to catch the Aces for a last-minute trip through Washington, DC! The Jive Aces will be leaving our dance to drive directly to Pittsburgh, so that's why the times for this dance are earlier. The Aces will still play their usual three sets but with shorter breaks, so we'll still have the same amount of music with this fantastic band.

Join us for a fabulous night of manic swing dance fun with the UK's top swing band! This wildly popular group has performed at thousands of festivals, theaters and events throughout the UK, Europe and the USA, as well as Japan, Israel and the Caribbean. Renown for their high-energy music and spectacular stage show, you'll be treated to swing and R&B classes made famous by greats such as Louis Prima, Cab Calloway, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Big Joe Turner, and Sammy Davis, Jr., among others. The Jive Aces will be joined tonight by the lovely songstress Makinna Ridgway of the Satin Dollz—what an incredible treat!!

After you see them, you’ll know why we NEVER miss a chance to see the Jive Aces!! Check out their award-winning video for their hit single "Bring Me Sunshine." It's swell!
