Step back in time with Flying Feet Enterprises and the 14 piece Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra for our annual WWII Canteen Dance.

Beginner lesson: 8-9 pm; no partner required
Dancing: 9 pm - Midnight
$20/pp (youth & active duty military discounted).
Proceeds to the USO!!

The Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra is a classic 14-piece Big Band, featuring the original arrangements of Count Basie, Billy May, and Nelson Riddle.
From The Washington Post: the EFJO "sets a standard not easily matched: in its performance of music from the great bands of the Big Band era --
Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton and more.
It's no wonder that PBS selected the EFJO to provide the soundtrack for their show The Big Band Sound of WWII.
