What: A Sock Hop with Rocket City Jazz Orchestra
When: 15 August 2015 7pm-11pm
Where: The Flying Monkey Theatre
2211 Seminole Drive

Hey there gang!

August is coming up fast and that means the end of summer, the beginning of a new school year and the annual Huntsville Swing Dance Society Sock Hop featuring the Rocket City Jazz Orchestra. The evening event will be held August 15, at the Lowe Mill’s Flying Monkey Theater, 2211 Seminole Drive. 

Think back to the 50s and dress in style with your scarves, tight jeans, leather jackets and slick hair. Come dressed like the bees knees and compete in our sock hop costume contest and remember, while poodle skirts are always appreciated, a little creativity goes a long way.

The whole shindig gets going with a lesson from 7-8 p.m. and the main dance will go from 8-11 p.m. General admission is $10; students and active military are $7. 

So get started on your costume today! Be the jock, the cheerleader, the geek or the greaser be a combination of any of them, but be there or be square!

We’ll see you there!
