On Saturday 2/6 at 7:00pm the YHS Gym will be transformed into a 1940’s Night Club, complete with bandstand, dance-floor, linen-clad tables and as much Valentine’s Day ambience as we can muster. The YHS Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Wind Ensemble will perform Swing Era music for your dancing and listening pleasure! Light refreshments will be served. Swing Era attire encouraged. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for non-band students and senior citizens. The evening will begin at 7:00 with a one-hour swing dance lesson by a professional dance studio. Live music (provided by your students!) and dancing 8-10:30pm.
THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE ENTIRE YORKTOWN COMMUNITY. IT IS NOT JUST A DANCE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS! PLEASE INVITE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS! LAST YEAR WE HAD OVER 300 PEOPLE (Ages 2 years to 90 years!) ATTEND.
PARENT HELP NEEDED
As usual, many parent volunteers will be needed to make this evening a success. Look for an e-mail in the coming week from (Band Aid Core Helper) Margaret Serafin letting you know how you can help.
RAFFLE ITEMS & BASKETS NEEDED
As part of our Swing Dance, we hold a really amazing raffle. Each year we ask families/local businesses for prize donation items, which are then organized into themed baskets.
Interested in helping with the raffle? Here is how:
- Do you have wicker gift baskets you are not using? Our raffle committee would love to use them! They will fill and wrap the baskets with prize items. Please send baskets to school by Fri. 1/29.
- Do you know a business that may be interested in donating a prize? Attached is a letter to area businesses inviting them to donate items to our raffle, or help sponsor our event through a monetary donation. In return, we are offering advertising space both at the event and in our concert program. If you have contact with a local business, or would like to help secure raffle items, please contact B.A.C.H. Kathleen Brawitsch ([email protected]).
You should hear your student practicing at home. Students are always welcome to practice during their free periods or after school. If your student would like extra help, Mrs. Kluga am available by appointment.
