if you're into anything that truly swings, you should check this out. My question is --> Does this place have any dance floor?

Has anyone else seen the PBS special "Swingin' with Duke" featuring Wynton and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra (and a few songs with Diane Reeves!!)

This is a stricktly sit down event unfortunately. There is no place to dance inside Kingsbury Hall. I wish I could talk them into doing a dance somewhere, but my powers of persuasion are not that strong........YET!!!!! Laughing

We should make an operations take down Kingsbury Hall. We could all get tickets in a big area and bring our screw drivers and start undoing the chairs and moving them from one side to another so that dance space would be there. Very Happy Then dance there of course.

There is always hope if you let it be there.

Actually, I'm not sure that there's anyway to lindybomb this event. Have you ever been in Kingsbury hall? There is less than ample space. Skinny aisles, seats have almost no foot-room. Plus, even if there was room, they'd probably kick you out if you got up and danced. There's not even any space in the back of the hall- there are seats right up to the doors. Anyway, Nate has not talked to them about (and won't), because there really is not any possibility. It's in a concert hall. People are paying a lot of money to go sit down and watch a concert. Even if we had unlimitied funds and influence, there no way it could happen at that venue.
(sorry- yes, that sounds negative. Sometimes that life! Confused )

Yes I've been there and it was a joke but now it’s a challenge.
