Posted by Tom on 01/19/2007 • BallroomPermalink


What can be better then taking your honey to a movie and dancing on Valentine’s Day?

Found this on the Cinema Arts Centre website. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Valentine’s Day Ballroom Dance

Enjoy the sublime Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the timeless classic:

SWING TIME

Followed by a Champagne/Dessert Reception & Free Lesson in Ballroom Dancing courtesy of the award-winning dancers from The Ballroom of Huntington!

Dress to the 9’s and Swing the Night Away with Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and more!

Swing Time opens with John “Lucky” Garnett (Fred Astaire), a gambler and professional dancer, arriving late to his own wedding. Still in tails, he hops a freight for New York , where he gets smitten by dance instructor Penny Carroll (Ginger Rogers). Following her to the studio, Astaire poses as a neophyte, but soon bursts into a dazzling display of terpsichorean skill. Impressed, the studio offers them an audition at the famed Silver Sandal nightclub. Arguably the peak of the Astaire-Rogers partnership, the dancers’ perfect blending of song, dance, wit, and decor only improves with time. Directed by George Stevens (1936, 103 min.)

Film at 7:30pm • Champagne/Dessert Reception & Dance Lesson at 9:15pm
