HSDS Presents A Sadie Hakins Dance with the Gnarly Parkers


What: HSDS Presents A Sadie Hakins Dance
Featuring The Gnarly Parkers
When:  19 April 2014,  7pm - 11pm
Where: The Flying Monkey Theatre
2211 Seminole Drive

Spring is finally here and with spring comes new blooms. Along those lines, the Huntsville Swing Dance Society has a brand new band lined up to make its Huntsville debut: The Gnarly Parkers. 

This group is the newest swing band in Nashville and they are bringing back the classic sound of traditional swing music. The music will get your fingers snapping, feet tapping and even your hands clapping. In fact, you may just want to be out of your seat dancing the whole time they play. 

It all goes down April 19 at the Flying Monkey Arts Center, 2211 Seminole Drive SW. There will be a beginner swing lesson from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and then the band takes the stage until 11 p.m. 

This month is our annual Sadie Hawkins dance, so ladies, don’t let those fellas stand around talking when you want to be dancing! And don’t worry guys, you're not going to get in trouble if you ask the ladies to dance. However, either guys or girls, if you’re ever not sure who to ask, just stand under our “I Want To Dance” sign and someone will come ask you. It's that easy! 

Come out and hear the Gnarly Parkers make their Huntsville debut April 19 at 8 p.m. We promise you’re going to love them as much as we do! As always, admission is $10 for general and $7 for students and active military. We’ll see you there!

The evening will start with a beginner lesson as usual at 7 p.m. and the first DJ will start off the night at 8 p.m. with music happening straight through to 11 p.m. Admission is just $7 for general and $5 for students and active military.
