It’s Swing Time at the Kennedy Center (by Margot Schulman)

Saturday the center is packed with jazz and scatting. The Manhattan Transfer is leading a master class for Afro Blue, a group from Howard University, and the University of North Texas Jazz Singers. In the dance space in the Grand Foyer, beginning at 6 p.m. the University of North Texas ensemble will play and lead some dancing.

Some examples of swing dancing follow.
