Come take a swing

Joshua Gaston | Thursday, April 14, 2011

Tired of the same boring dorm parties without any swing music?

Girls, tired of creepy guys dancing up on you without asking? Guys, tired of not being able to show off your dance moves and impress that girl you’ve liked ever since she sat besides you in that one class? Then we at Swing Club have the greatest opportunity for you!

We announce the first ever Swing Formal, which will be held this Saturday, April 16, in the Knights of Columbus building from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. There will be food, there will be music and there will be most of all space. Anybody can come to this event for only a dollar, but swing members and ballroom members get in for free. That’s right. Free.

Boyfriends, this is a way you can get classy without getting too expensive (if you want expensive, go to Lasalle Grill in South Bend, absolutely delicious). Dress is classy — after all it is a formal — but come ready to dance.

Come for the dancing. Come to try and pick up that one cool move you see that one guy in the hat pull at Legends all the time. Come for the food, come to get down with your boogie self and come to have a — got to keep this clean — great time! Don’t be nervous or scared to come out. After all, Franklin Roosevelt said,

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

See, even one of the greatest presidents of our time wants you to go. We intend to have a blast, and anybody sure as heck can join in for this ridiculous night of dancing.

Knights of Columbus Building, Saturday, 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Be there.

Sophomore Swinger,

Joshua Gaston
