On May 22nd-24th Toronto is hosting our own World Lindy Hop Day Celebrations With Special Guests Dawn Hampton & Sylvia Sykes.

On the Saturday night of our weekend we are hosting “The Dawn Hampton Ball” and the dress code is: Dress to impress, as Dawn would, in sequins and anything glittery with the Dovercourt house being transformed into something you have never seen before and the room being filled with the Big Band Sounds of “Martin Loomer & the Orange Devils“.

In preparation for the evening here is some inspiration for that night from Dawn and other sources. The Light is On!
