Step into the silver screen for New Years Eve at Sugar Swing! This year’s bash is a nod to the magic and glamour of silent film. We’re especially excited to welcome a live band, The Seven Deadly Syncopators, playing all your favourite swing dance tunes!
Dress to the nines — in black and white — or get in character as a silent film movie star. Think Charlie Chaplain, Theda Bara, Buster Keaton, Clara Bow, and the famous heroes, villains and fantastic creatures from the early age of film. A beginner dance lesson will get you on your feet and all set for an evening of revelry. Tickets start at just $40!
— Live swing music!
— Live swing dance performances!
— Finger foods to keep you going and put some pep in your step.
— A lounge area to recharge — kick back with a drink, chat with old and new friends, and enjoy the music.
— Funk, soul and pop dance party on one floor, live swing dance on the main floor!
— Cocktails with a silent film flair, plus fancy beer and wine at the bar.
— Champagne and midnight countdown, of course!
— No dance experience? No big deal. We kick off the evening with a beginner dance lesson where you’ll learn enough to get up on the dance floor with everybody. You don’t even need to bring a partner!
…and lots more fun features to be announced!
