Swing Dance Portesham hosts Amy Baker & The Rhythm Sisters at Weymouth Pavilion for their first ever appearance in Dorset!
The “2019 Best Jazz Act South East” award winner brings her all female lineup of Amy Baker and The Rhythm Sisters to our Dorset Swinging Spring Ball.
Miss Amy Baker has enjoyed Radio 2 airplay on The Elaine Paige Show as well as the Paul Jones Show, and she has performed at many prestigious locations, from Ronnie Scotts to Glastonbury Festival.
Her recent hit “It’s A Good Day!” features many Swing Dance Company teachers and social dancers in the video, including Dorset’s very own Nicki! Check out the video here.
This Swinging Themed Ball is open to all, whether you want to spend all night dancing or prefer to kick back and watch the show. This event will follow a similar format to last year’s hugely popular Dorset Swinging Xmas Ball held in Weymouth Pavilion, a format which has been honed over nearly 20 years of running similar Swinging Balls in Hampshire. These events attract some of the UK and Europe’s finest jive and swing bands, along with huge attendances.
Our Swinging Balls are more than just a live band event though. Guests are invited to dress appropriately for retro / festive theme – but keep it light-hearted, this is a theme evening and just for fun! Our team will be busy dressing the venue especially for the night!
The band will be supported by swinging DJs and a warm-up lesson. The DJ team will play a great mix of swing, rock’n’roll and rhythm and blues music.
Weymouth Pavilion offers a spacious dance floor, ample seating and tables plus a fully licensed bar. Being located on the sea front the venue offers a fabulous location, beautiful views and a large car park on site. We expect to attract dancers from all over the South.
Our Swinging Balls have featured some of the finest performers for dancers, acts including The Regular Joes, The Jive Aces, Mike Sanchez, Si Cranstoun, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys and The Swing Commanders have all appeared at our Swinging Balls over the years. We’re confident that this evening will bring just as much joy to attendees.
