Albany First Friday Swing Dance – Cancelled thru May

Hi my friends. These are tough times. Obviously, the Albany 1st Friday Swing Dances on Apr 3 and May 1 are cancelled. We’ll see for future dates like June 5. Time will tell.

Please stay at home and be safe. Don’t go out unless you have to. And keep exercising inside and out near home. And dance at home like no one is watching. It’s exhilarating. Be thankful for what we have.
