Jam Cellar New Blood Night


Editorial Review

The Jam Cellar is one of Washington's most enjoyable swing dance nights. Held Every Tuesday at the swank Josephine Butler Parks Center across from Meridian Hill Park, it the jam features friendly crowds, a smooth hardwood dance floor, great old-school jazz DJs and classes taught by some of the best instructors around. If you've never been, here's a reason to get off the couch: It's "new blood night." First-time attendees get in free. Dancers who bring newbie friends along also get in free. And everyone who shows up can take a free lesson at 9 p.m. before the main event gets underway. Honestly, you've got nothing to lose. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes.
