Salute To The Troops began as a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII. It was designed to be a retrospective of dance from the forties and to pay tribute to veterans who had served in WWII. But that soon grew to include veterans of all foreign wars . and then, "What about our troops now serving?" Why not salute all of those valiant ones serving in our Armed Services? And so Salute To The Troops was born!
At this performance, you'll step back in time, right into a USO Club in full "Swing"! Paul Hoke's swing dancers, and anyone else, will be on the floor, a buffet (forties style "real" food) will be provided and there will be a cash bar. Pat Throneburg's seventeen piece Big Band will provide fantastic music for the evening and a USO type Show will begin at 7:30, carrying on throughout the evening, broken occasionally to present various forms of dance (forties style, of course!) . Maybe a few shag numbers will find their way into the sets so that everyone will be able to strut their stuff on the dance floor! Dancing is encouraged throughout the evening whenever you feel the urge! You can swing through the evening to the best in swing music and even polka along as Sentimental Journey sings Beer Barrel Polka!
A $15 ticket is unbelievable for all this! But then again . It's All About Dance!
