Valentine Swing Dance, Lessons at Peabody

Grab your sweetheart and dance the night away at a Valentine Swing Dance on Saturday, Feb. 12, from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Peabody Conservatory cafeteria, 1 E. Mount Vernon Place in Baltimore. Dance instruction will take place from 8 to 9 p.m. The dance is free and features music by the JHU Band's Jazz Ensemble and the Peabody OASIS's Sixth Dimension Sax Quartet. Dance instruction will be provided by Hopkins professor Joanne Houlahan. In addition to being a computer engineer, Houlahan has taught swing dance professionally for many years in the Baltimore-Washington area.

Following the dance lesson, the JHU Jazz Ensemble, conducted by Matt Belzer, and the Sixth Dimension Sax Quartet will provide music for dancing until midnight. This is the fifth annual Valentine Dance hosted by the JHU Jazz Ensemble. Both groups have played various venues on the Homewood and Peabody campuses, including E-Level, Coffee Grounds, and concerts in the Glass Pavilion. The Swing Dance is sponsored by the JHU Band, directed by James Sherry and the Peabody OASIS, with assistance from the JHU Office of Alumni Relations, through the Student Services Funding Program. For more information about the dance, call 410-366-9332.
