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!
This would be AMAZING at the Dovercourt!
These would be pretty cool for the bake sale!
Hope this inspired you to break out your best glitter and sequins, whatever that may be. Can’t WAIT to see what everyone will be wearing!
Note: Dance Passes and Workshop Passes are selling quickly and at the door pricing for the Saturday Night dance ($35 includes silent auction, bake sale, late night blues plus extra surprises) will only apply IF there is room. Don’t miss out on this night and the other dances (Friday and Sunday) and the workshop classes as well. Register today!
