In Memory of Swing Daddy
was an integral part of the 88s and the entire swing dance community.
His contributions will long be remembered - along with his love for the
music and the dancers, which was sometimes hidden behind his occasionally
gruff exterior. He cared more about all of it than I think any of us will
ever know. He will be deeply missed.
Thanks for checking out
our website! We are the Swingin' 88's, a
group of people that met 14 years ago while having fun dancing.
This group formed for a common purpose: to keep "Swing" alive
in southern New England and to have fun! It started with 8 members
and now has 25+ members and hundreds of friends.
Celebrating 14 Years in the Dance Community
2013 marked 14 years for us hosting dances and being in the dance
to all of you who have supported us for so many years. We could
not do it without you and we appreciate it! Here's
to another 14years!
Showing Strong Support for
the Community ...
host a monthly dance at the Brightridge Club in
East Providence, RI usually on the last Saturday of March,
May, September, and November. Please see our
schedule of dances for the year. We also host fundraisers
for local community groups. In the past 14 years,
we have raised over $41,000 for a variety of groups.
Please visit us often for the latest news in "Swing"
of dancing events!
brought a female friend to your dance last night, Sat
7/26th, for her 1st time at your dances. She was a little
reluctant because she didn't know the crowd. She had a
great time thanks to the friendly leaders. Quite a few
men took the time to ask her to dance even though they
didn't know her. She was impressed with how friendly everyone
was. Not all venues have the reputation for being a 'friendly'
dance but the Swingin' 88's now have that reputation with
her. GREAT JOB, LEADERS!"
of your regular attendees,
Joyce from Connecticut
Whether you are an experienced
dancer, a novice dancer, or no dancer, you will have a good
time with us!
We GUARANTEE Good
Food, Good Music, Good Company!
