Big Band Dance Happening at the Hornet

On Saturday, May 12, the Harry James Orchestra Big Band Dance is taking place on the USS Hornet.

“Get ready to put on your dancing shoes and Swing, Jitterbug, Rhumba, Cha Cha, and dance the night away!” say organizers. “Don’t worry if you don’t know all of the dance steps—former Fred Astaire dance instructor Jim Truesdale and his team will be giving free dance lessons all night.”

The popular Swingin’ Blue Stars will be performing the Andrew Sisters classics.

For those who don’t like to dance, there will be plenty of fun to observe, according to USS Hornet supporters, so “just sit back and enjoy the show!”

Cash bars and food concessions will be available during the evening.

The cost of general admission is $40, captains’ reserved seats are $60, and admirals’ premium reserved Seats (the best seats in the house) are $80.

Call (510) 521-8448 x282 for more information.
