New Year's Eve tickets are on sale Wednesdays in two areas: Swing Time Section C and Gulfport Dancers' Alcoves #8 & #9.  We've sold out the original Swing Time section, so we've created another one — Swing Time Section C — which will put you right on the dance floor level amongst fellow dancers.  Gulfport Dancers' Alcoves #8 & #9 are a combined double-alcove to the right of the stage that are reserved each year by Gulfport swing dancers for a potluck and party within the party.  Tickets in these sections for Swingin' the New Year (St. Petersburg Coliseum) are available, first-come first-serve, while they last, to dancers who purchase them in person at prior events. 

Wednesday, December 5th — Learn the St Pete StompWant to be part of a dance performance New Year's Eve?  Sam has choreographed a dance for New Year's Eve called the St Pete Stomp, and you can learn it in one hour.  Everyone who learns it is invited to perform the dance at band intermission at Swingin' the New Year!  Like the Shim Sham, you don't need a dance partner.  Come to the 6:00pm lesson Wednesday, December 5th, at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night to learn the St Pete Stomp.

Join special guest instructor, Angie Causey, and the United Soul Line Dancers of Florida for a Soul Line Dancing lesson at 7pm.  You'll learn three new soul line dances, and you'll get to dance them all later during the dance!  Dance instructor & choreographer, Angie Causey, is founder of the United Soul Line Dancers.  She's been dancing and teaching for over 10 years, and regularly travels and teaches all across the USA.
