SWING BY CHINA ONE LAST TIME

It’s closing time, and earlier than expected. We have been told that the final class and social will be on 24th August.

We have a special class by Dorry Sergev, a surgeon by day, a veteran dancer and scene leader in Baltimore by night. If you’ve not met Dorry, you’re in for a surprise, as the man is a fun and fantastic dancer and musician. He will share the love of his dance with you guys, 730-9pm.

This is followed by the final party from 9-1130pm, DJed music by DJ D’zzey K and yours truly, along with some performances, and a honey pot Jack and Jill. Swing by and say good bye to this fantastic venue one last time, really!

Class: $35, Socials: $15

Where: China One, 3E Clark Quay #02-01 (Nearest Stations: Clark Quay (3min), City Hall (8min), facing the Singapore River, near the GX5 Xtreme Swing!
