NEW FLYERS! -- GULFPORT CASINO SWING NIGHT
GRAB A FEW & HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
The Wednesday Gulfport Casino Swing Night now has a beautiful new flyer you can use to tell others about the night! The front design is by graphic artist, Diane Dempsey, with the words "It's Swing Time!" and the photo of a dancer getting ready to enter the dance. On the flip side is the info for the Gulfport Casino Swing Night.... and all this on a card just bigger than a business card... the perfect size for carrying a few in your wallet or purse. We encourage everyone to grab as many of these flyers as they can give out, and help spread the word about the Wednesday Gulfport Casino Swing Night... because the more dancers, the merrier, and we've always found that in addition to our efforts promoting the night, the best advertising is always word of mouth.
HUGE DANCE CONTEST! -- FRI 8/1 AT CENTRO ASTURIANO
$100 CASH 1ST PRIZE
Coming Friday, August 1st, to the Grand Ballroom of Centro Asturiano in Tampa is Swing Time! ...Florida's Premier Swing Event, featuring Charlie Vegas & the New Blues Combo! A HUGE dance contest happens at band intermission -- The Swing Dance Contest with a Twist! 1st Place is $100 Cash! Plus, we have great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place too. You've never seen a dance contest like this before! Last month's contest was wild and exciting, with finalists being matched up with each other's partners! What's the twist this time? You'll have to be there to see!
How does it work? First of all, entry is FREE to all those who attend the Swing Time! event. Enter with your favorite dance partner (but if you don't have one, we'll match up people right then & there who want to enter). Step onto the dance floor at contest time (around 10:15pm, at band intermission). We choose the music and all contestants dance simultaneously to 2-3 song clips (60-90s each) ranging from slow to fast. Judges and audience pick the top three couples to advance to the finals. In the finals comes the twist! -- a little surprise to infuse some more fun & excitement into the contest AND tell us who are the best dancers!
