The Fall Big Band Dance, presented by the Illinois State University Jazz Ensembles, will be from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, November 10, at The New Lafayette Club, located at 1602 S. Main Street, Bloomington.
Admission is $15 at the door, and only cash and checks are accepted. Attendees are expected to dress in an appropriate manner, so no jeans or T-shirts.
The ensembles, which are directed by Tom Marko, will feature classic big band music from the 1930s and 1940s. A wide variety of ballroom dance styles—such as the cha-cha-cha, rhumba, waltz, swing, salsa, and samba—will also be included. Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and a cash bar will be available.
All proceeds from the event will help support student jazz activities at Illinois State University, including guest artists, travel, purchase of music, and more. For more information, contact Tom Marko at (309) 438-2541, or tjmark@IllinoisState.edu.
