Swing for Scrap

THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN SWING FOR SCRAP. ONLINE SALES HAVE ENDED. ADVANCE TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE SCRAP EXCHANGE UNTIL 9 P.M. FRIDAY, NOV. 18, OR FROM 10 A.M. TO 5 P.M. SATURDAY, NOV. 19. THEREAFTER, REMAINING TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DORIS DUKE CENTER BEGINNING AT 6:30 P.M. SATURDAY.

PARKING FOR THE EVENT IS FREE.
Join us at a rocking swing dance in Duke Gardens' elegant Doris Duke Center to raise money for The Scrap Exchange, Durham's 20-year-old creative reuse center. The dance will feature DJs Chris Owens and Laura Windley playing classic East Coast swing tunes. And if you come to Jason Sager's beginner lesson at 7 p.m. (included in ticket price), you can learn basic moves that will serve you all night.
No special attire is required -- anything from blue jeans to vintage Lindy Hop dresses will work. Leather-soled shoes are highly recommended for ease in dancing and keeping from torturing your knee joints. Leave your flip-flops and mules at home; they will make you trip and that's no fun.
We'll also have dance bags and other goodies for sale, and Raleigh Rolfing (Jason Sager) will offer bodywork sessions for donation -- all to help The Scrap Exchange keep fulfilling its important mission.
We'll have soft drinks and snacks available. But no alcoholic beverages are permitted. Being sober will help you remember your dance moves better anyway. Trust us: nobody appreciates a tipsy swing dancer.
Want to donate more? We would welcome anything you're able to give to help Scrap serve the Durham community and beyond. See our donation link at http://www.scrapexchange.org for a non-dance-related donation link.
