May 2: Lindy Strikes Back! (Kroeber Plaza)

Get ready for another amazing night of swing dancing! That's right, Lindy at Night is here again, and the force is strong with this one! This time, we'll be swinging out in honor of May the 4th (otherwise known as International Star Wars Day). So come dressed in your favorite Star Wars themed apparel or costume, and join us for a great night dancing under the stars!

Aside from a whole fours hours of social dancing, you'll be treated to a wonderful performance featuring the [M]ovement Swing dance group, choreographed by Lindy on Sproul's very own Kevin L Chen and Megan Mubaraki!

NOTE: This Lindy at Night will not be held on Sproul. Instead, we're moving to a galaxy far, far away: Kroeber Plaza, up at Bancroft and College (a couple of blocks uphill from the normal Lindy at Night location). We'll be by the fountain between Wurster, Boalt and Kroeber halls. See you there!

Free social dancing lessons will occur at 8PM until 9PM, followed by social dancing from 9 to midnight. There will be a beginner lesson for those of you who have no prior experience, and an intermediate lesson for those who do.
