Thursday and Friday parties at Time Out Market

Playing music for swing dancers is a beautiful collaboration for us. Our amazing musicians from Spain, France, Russia and the USA give them the songs, the beat, and the solos. They give us back the fantastic energy of how they interpret us, and that further inspires us to mutual exuberance. It’s an All Star, All World, All Fun experience!”
