SWINGING CHRISTMAS: Sure to put some jingle in your step, 'Uptown Holiday Swing' celebrates the best of the big bands.

This 1940s-era revival of song and dance brings classic big band and swing music to the Tabard Theatre. Inspired by the sounds of Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Uptown Holiday Swing features jazzy renditions of Christmas carols—backed by three different local big bands—and all of the swing era’s most iconic dance moves. Expect performers to lindy hop to wartime-era tunes like “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Winter Wonderland” and more. Best of all, the show begins with a free swing dance lesson 20 minutes before each performance to prepare even the most ill-coordinated for the night’s festivities.
