Excellence in the Community and the Gallivan Center present a weekly series of big band swing dances at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Starting May 27 with the 19 piece big band, Wasatch Jazz Project, and continuing Tuesday evenings through the end of September.
The concerts take place outdoors, there is a dance floor in front of the stage. All of these events are free. We will be featuring area big bands such as the Wasatch Jazz Project, Synthesis, Caleb Chapman and the Crescent Super Band, Salsa Brava and Tad Calcara & New Deal Swing.
One audience member summed it up this way last summer: "A great band, a great venue, great sound and lights. Dancing outdoors under the stars downtown. And it's free. What more could one ask for?"
Bring a blanket, bring a picnic, bring the kids and bring the dancing shoes. Dancing instruction starts at 7:00, the music starts at 7:30. More information at excellenceconcerts.org.
