Our inimitable Friday night swing dance once again hosts the Hot Club of Baltimore. The bar opens at 7:30, drop in beginner lesson at 8, dance at 9. Friday nights here are an institution, and we like to get weird. Dress to impress. $15/$10 students.
Come at 8 for a drop-in beginner lesson ($5). Dancing begins at 9 ($5). The bar opens at 7:30. Monday is the most welcoming and engaging night for beginner dancers, and, like everything we do here, it's exceedingly fun.
The legendary Michael Faltesek is back for a full evening of solo jazz classes on Wednesday, Dec. 14. Last time he blew everyone's mind with a number of choreographies, this time he's going to hone in on solo jazz vocabulary and improvisation. $35 7:30-10:30pm.
After a few months break, Mobtown's own Sarah Sullivan and the New Old Fashioneds will return rejuvenated and ready to burn down the Ballroom. As usual, the bar will be open, the air will be on, and the music will be fun. Drop in lesson at 8pm, dance at 9pm. $15/$10 with student ID.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear friend, workhorse, companion, lover, and no-account villain Pikesville Rye Whiskey. The whiskey that has defined rails in Baltimore for decades is no more, and we intend to gather on Dec 17th for a celebration of its life. This event is free. There will be testimonials, music, and general celebration. Our remaining four cases of Pikesville Rye will be consumed by you, the fine folks of the Mobtown Ballroom, in the spirit of degenerate fun that characterized our departed friend. Cocktail specials, etc.

Later in the evening we rock a little soul music. $10 for the whole shebang; $7 dance only.

Our weekly free practice session for Lindy Hoppers and swing dancers. Sometimes cancelled for special events. 3-5pm on Sundays. Be there. It costs nothing. We do it because we love.
