Part of the Nahant Vintage Dance Weekend, Aug. 8-12, 2019. After an afternoon of dance classes, imagine you are about to visit Jay Gatsby’s summer estate in Newport. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres while watching the sunset from the piazza, or stroll in the garden while sipping a cocktail (cash bar) before sitting down to dinner. We’ll then dance the night away to fabulous live music by the Nahant Dance Orchestra, which includes world renowned band leader Dan Levinson on clarinet and saxophone; Sue Fischer, drums; Dan Gabel, trombone; Jan Frenkel, piano; Justin Meyer, bass; Paul Monat, trumpet.

The musical program will begin with music of the 1910s during dinner and continue with 1920s hot jazz to lift your spirits and call us to the dance floor. Suggested attire is formal evening wear of any era, with an emphasis on turn of the century through 1920s dress in keeping with the spirit of the evening.
