Good day, old sport! You're cordially invited to join us in the roaring '20s for a truly indulgent soiree, cause a little party never killed nobody, so let's misbehave. This month, join us for a Gatsby RISQUÉ; a celebration of all things decadent and revelrous from the great jazz age that even Jay Gatsby himself would be proud of.
We're bringing you back to the era that gave way to opulence and self-expression the likes of which had never been seen before, and this newfound post-war freedom gave way to the early days of the swing dance movement. And to show our appreciation, we're playing nothing but swing, all night long; from classic swing, to modern re-imaginations like electroswing, we've got it all covered. And for those that are new to the then ground-breaking dance movement, we will have swing dance teachers from 6pm till 9pm just there to teach you how to get down.
Step back to the age of opulence, revelry; the golden age of music and dance, and celebrate the 1920's with RISQUÉ. Fellas, put on your finest duds, ladies, pin up your hair and break out your flapper dresses, and nobody forget your dancing shoes!

Samsara Entertainment & J'aimoda
Samsara is the acknowledgment that life exists as a cycle; a continuous wandering between life, death, and rebirth that is infinitely connected. For this reason we live honestly, cultivate the strength in positivity, and embrace the natural expression of our body's response to the earth's messages: dance. We come together hoping that our appreciation for the internal and aesthetic value of this expression will help to heal the sense of disconnect in our world. A free body is an open heart, let's fill it with music.
