Dance at Charlotte Eagles Game - Free

Saturday, May 27, 2017

at Charlotte Christian School, 7301 Sardis Road, Charlotte, NC 28270

We have been invited back to dance informally before the game and dance 2-3 dances during half time. It doesn't require any routines, just dance a couple of dances like you would at a dance with other dancers to show the community what swing dancing is and have some fun with us. Dress in something a little "swingy" and come join us.

6:00-7:00 PM Pre-Game Informal dancing in the vendor area (dirt/grass area)

Approx 7:45 PM is half time. We have 8 minutes to do 2 or 3 dances on the field (Astroturf surface, very easy to dance on)

You and a guest can come free. Please send an email to with your name, email & phone (and any guest's name that is coming with you so we can add you to the guest list). After we dance, feel free to hand around and watch a great soccer game. More details on the Events page.
