"Swing at Glen Echo" Dance Clubs Tip by DrewV

Dance Clubs, Washington D.C.: 14 reviews and 9 photos

Glen Echo is a fabulous old carnival ground in Maryland just outside of the District. Every Saturday (I think) the gorgeous Victorian-style Spanish Ballroom plays host to a huge live Swing dancing spectacle. Free lessons are followed by all-around crazy Gap-ad worthy swing. Tons of fun for both beginners and experts, for 8-year-old whirling dervishes to old-timers to swing-kids.

Dress Code: If you're good, wear your zoot-suits and saddle shoes. If not, stick with basic club attire. Kick up your heels and have fun!

Directions: Glen Echo is on the Clara Barton parkway on the Maryland side of the Potomac.
Theme: Dancing

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
