Fun Pit special event!
by swingadmin on 12th February 2018
This Friday 16 February 2018, Swing Patrol’s Fun Pit hits the road for a special, one night only event, at a different but familiar location –
Tango Esencia: 327 Swan St. Richmond
Same schedule of classes (Level 2 @ 7pm, Level 1 @ 8pm), featuring regular Fun Pit teachers Tanya Stephan and Joel Kohn.
Plus social dancing from 9 -11.30pm with DJs Damon and Scott.
Long ago, one summer in the early 2000s, Swing Patrol launched a new venue, with a beginner class and social dancing, to fill the gap while other class venues were on hiatus. It was named after the directors – Claudia FUNder and Scott CuPIT – FUN PIT. For several years it’s home was Sidewalk Tango, a delightful dance studio at 327 Swan St Richmond. Over the years, Fun Pit changed locations, the studio (re-branded as Tiki Bar) became home to our regular Sunday Blues venue for a time, and has hosted our weekly Balboa classes for 10 years. Recently refurbished and reopened as Tango Esencia, it boasts a beautiful dance floor, lounge area and bar.
With Swing Patrol director Scott Cupit in town, this is the perfect excuse for a return to home base, for a special Fun Pit Summer Party. Be sure to come along on Friday, you never know who you might see on the dance floor!
