This weekend we returned to Governors Island to perform at the Jazz Age Lawn Party. Once again, thousands of people flocked to the island to enjoy the tunes of Michael Aranella and His Dreamland Orchestra. Each morning the ferry was packed with dancers, vintage enthusiasts, photographers, musicians, picnic appreciators, spectators, and more. This eclectic crew succeeded in making yet another perfect lawn party. We performed a total of six routines over the weekend with Roddy Caravella and His Canarsie Wobblers, including two new routines choreographed by Roddy Caravella himself. If you missed out on this fabulous weekend, make sure to purchase tickets for the August 16-17 weekend. Tickets sell out fast! Also join us for our series of weekly group lessons on 1920’s Dances and get ready to show off your moves in August!
