Get ready to sweat – summer’s in session and our hot jazz will have you jumping along to the beat.

We’ll be living it up down in Fort Lauderdale at Swing Out South Florida's party of the year. The Retro Beach Ball is a vintage dance bash that will turn back the clock to the jazz age with a live grandpa-style jazz band, authentic swing dancing from the era, a vintage beachwear contest, and a shop full of retro goodies that will help you get in the mood. Not sure how to swing dance? No worries – we have a free beginner lesson for attendees before the main event that will have you hopping in no time. The whole shebang takes place at C&I Studios, a great space with plenty of room to jump, jive and wail all night long.

Here are some of the great things happening at The Retro Beach Ball:

Retro Beachwear Costume Contest w/$150 worth of prizes
Free Raffle w/ private dance lesson as the prize (a $50 value)
Live jazz band
Photo booth inside of a giant shark head
Vintage Clothing & Jewelry by Jayne
Free Beginner Dance Lesson & Vintage Swing Dancing all night long
Old-timey surf movies projected on the walls for your enjoyment
Special Guest DJ Tamar Mucha from Orlando

The dance lesson goes from 7:30-8:00. No partner or dance experience necessary, only a desire to boogie like a beach bum. The dance bash goes from 8:00-11:00 on Saturday, July 13th. This beach bash only happens once a year, so now is the time to come out and party like it’s 1940.
