It not only had a rich culture of dance, but also showcased the cream of Swing bands. In 1993, the Lindy Hop legend Frankie Manning named our previous club, “The New Home of Happy Feet”. If you’ve not been to Stern Hall before you’re in for a treat, if you have been before, you’re in for a treat! We have international teachers, the cream of contemporary Swing bands, too many sweets, a complimentary raffle, air conditioning, great Savoy Style Lindy Hop classes, and special guest DJs oh!, and…A GREAT, BIG BALLROOM!
