A music and dance benefit for Jazz Night School

Date: May 6, 2017
Time: 6:30PM – 10:00PM
Location: BASE Experimental Arts + Space in Georgetown, Seattle 

You’re invited to join us for an evening of music, dance, and fun!

We are excited to invite you to our first ever Swing Dance fundraiser for the benefit of Jazz Night School! We have a lot to celebrate and a lot to look forward to: Our recent move and the construction of our new home at Rainier Ave has greatly increased our ability to expand programs for JNS students and the community. The JNS Capital Campaign has already raised $100,000 towards funding this expansion but we have another $150,000 left to go. We have doors to install, signage to build, and music to share –  come Swing Jazz to Life with us as we work towards these goals!

The night will feature drinks, hor d’oeuvres, live music and dancing. Enjoy a crash course in swing dance, or sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds as Big Band Blue plays live music for your listening (or dancing) pleasure.  


  • Reception with heavy appetizers and drinks
  • Silent Auction
  • Swing dance crash course
  • Two full sets of dancing, live swing music performed by JNS very own Big Band Blue 
  • Paddle Raise
  • Dessert Dash
  • And other fun activities!

Come and dance the night away with us! Space is limited so purchase your ticket/table early. Tickets are $100 per seat and tables of 10 are $1,000. The value of the services and goods provided is $60 per ticket, and any amount paid over that per ticket is a tax deductible contribution. All proceeds from this event go towards Jazz Night School’s capital campaign and operational expenses.
