On Saturday 2/11 at 7:00pm the YHS Gym will be transformed into a 1940’s style Night Club, complete with bandstand, dance-floor, linen-clad tables, and as much Valentine’s Day ambience as we can muster. The YHS Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Wind Ensemble will perform Swing Era music for your dancing and listening pleasure! Light refreshments will be served. Swing Era attire is encouraged. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for non-band students and senior citizens. The evening will begin at 7:00 with a one-hour swing dance lesson by a professional dance studio. Live music (provided by your students!) and dancing 8-10:30pm.
THIS EVENT IS A CONCERT THAT WILL FEATURE YOUR STUDENT. IT IS ALSO A SOCIAL EVENT OPEN TO THE ENTIRE YORKTOWN COMMUNITY. THIS IS NOT JUST A DANCE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS! PLEASE INVITE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS! LAST YEAR WE HAD OVER 300 PEOPLE (Ages 2 years to 90 years!) ATTEND.
A flyer advertising our Swing Dance is attached. Please feel free to post at your place of work, place of worship, or anywhere you think people would be interested.

RAFFLE ITEMS & BASKETS NEEDED
As part of our Swing Dance, we hold a really amazing raffle. Each year we ask families/local businesses for prize donations, which are then organized into themed baskets.
Interested in helping with the raffle? Here is how:
- Do you have wicker gift baskets you are not using? Our raffle committee would love to use them! They will fill and wrap the baskets with prize items. Please send baskets into school by Friday 2/3.
- We are looking for additional items to complete some of our themed baskets. A list of what we need is attached. If you are interested in donating some of these items, please e-mail band parent Anne McKeown ([email protected]). Please send items into school by this Friday 2/3. Thank you!
