Event description

Description

Join Ed Schmutz and The Sugar Sweets on September 12th and 13th at the Grand Oak Showroom (in the Evergreen Community SPACES) to marvel at the exotic animals in their vintage menagerie…everything from killer bees to earth’s most elegant creature: the sloth. The Sugar Sweets’ Menagerie show features 11 dance numbers with choreographies that feature swing and solo jazz styles from the 1920’s to 1950’s.

There will be a complimentary candy bar and refreshments during intermission. This year we are in a new venue with a real dance floor in front of the stage, so stay after the show for half an hour of social swing dancing. Can’t wait to see you there!

Free surface and underground parking is available at the Evergreen Community SPACES. The show will be held in the Grand Oak Showroom.

ABOUT US


The Sugar Sweets are a passionate and collaborative group of dancers who take pride in presenting high quality, historically accurate vernacular jazz, blues and chorus girl dances from the 1910's through the 1950's. Our main inspiration comes from the famous Broadway and off-Broadway chorus lines of Ziegfield, Busby Berkeley, and the Rockettes. Other influences include modern jazz choreographers, such as Bob Fosse, and teachers and leaders of the Swing revival such as Frankie Manning and Al Minns. We are also constantly improvising and creating original routines of our own based on this rich historical foundation!

WHAT TO WEAR


Be apart of the zoo! Dress to impress in your favourite exotic animal attire… time to dust off that penguin onesie :D. Costumes are totally optional, but highly encouraged! Bring your water bottle and dance shoes if you want to get in on the social dance after the show.
