Swing Dance with Bombay Jim and the Swingin' Sapphires

Amazing Things is always open to new Ideas and new projects. Jim Porcella called to tell us that the band was interested in starting a swing dance scene at the Center. "You Betcha" was our answer. We're gonna give it a try here and if it works we'll schedule a monthly dance. So shine 'em up an' flap 'em!
