Acclaimed choreographer and Dance Magazine cover star Caleb Teicher brings the thrill of the swing dance world to Bass Concert Hall for their Austin debut. With live music by the acclaimed Eyal Vilner Big Band, Lindy Hop champions use the joy, fire, and fight of competitive and social swing dance as a launching pad to explore and subvert traditional gender roles. The audience is invited to join the action in the second half for an onstage social dancing experience called The Jam. The New York Times urges “If you need a break, take one. Swing it out.”
