Sat. Oct 30 - Halloween's Eve Dance

Our first Saturday evening dance of the season.
Its Halloween's eve! Expect the playlist to be full of paradoxes- blue notes and explorations of minor keys yet with melody, energy and playful fun.

The dance will be costume friendly, or you can dress in your latest fashion, or dress comfortably and be yourself.
