Presented by Flushing Town Hall Space Grantee Project Connect, this interactive dance program will take participants on a journey through the swing era by following its main character, Lillian Carlyle, an aspiring dancer from Hollywood. It features authentic jazz music from the 1920s-40s by Big Band greats such as Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, as well as vintage fashions and most importantly, the high energy Lindy Hop dance that began during this time.

About Flushing Town Hall
The mission of Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) is to present multi-disciplinary global arts that engage and educate the global communities of Queens, New York and New York City, New York, in order to foster mutual appreciation. As advocates of arts equity since 1979, they support local, immigrant, national, and international artists, developing partnerships and collaborations that enhance our efforts.
Flushing Town Hall provides exciting opportunities for kids and families to encounter the arts together. Their performance series showcases talented professionals from a variety of performing arts and cultures whose shows have proven to be entertaining for audience members young and old. Their Interactive Arts compliment these presentations by giving kids and families a fun opportunity to do a hands-on exploration of the show's art forms taught by the performers or Flushing Town Hall teaching artists.
