Jazz Swing Dance


The Swing of Things 

Presented by the Jazz Bands & Jazz Ensembles of Wheaton North High School

Get into The Swing of Things with the jazz bands of Wheaton North High School.  This annual swing dance keeps WNHS jumping with three hours of jazz and swing music performed by the student musicians at Wheaton North and jazz bands from Franklin and Monroe Middle Schools . This year’s theme is The Great Gatsby and proceeds from the night benefit the entire band program.

Radio personality and Wheaton North alumnus, Herb Lawrence, is guest emcee, for an evening that includes swing dance lessons, a raffle, and an online auction. Light refreshments will also be served.

Join us for dance lessons from 6-7p and Music and Dancing from 7-10p.

The Swing of Things will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2022 in The Commons* at Wheaton North High School, 701 W Thomas Rd, Wheaton.
