Special Feature: NJPAC Staff to Perform Lindy Hop at the Ice House
The New Jersey Performing Art Center (NJPAC), one of our Cool Down for Warmth event partner, will perform a Lindy Hop at the Ice House at 12:30 p.m. on February 1st.
The Lindy Hop is an American dance that was born in Harlem, New York City in 1928 and has evolved since then with the jazz music of that time. It was particularly popular during the Swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s.
Don’t forget – all ticket sales to the Ain’t Misbehavin’ performances from February 1-4 will benefit NJ SHARES. Purchase your tickets and support NJ SHARES via this link:
