An Evening at the Brant Inn 2022 Highlights

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Museums of Burlington‘s “Evening at the Brant Inn” on May 28th with danceScape’s Robert Tang & Beverley Cayton-Tang presenting dance lessons at 7.30 pm (Jive/Swing) and 9.15 pm (Mambo/Salsa). The event recreated the Sky Club Ballroom and Outdoor “Lido Deck” overlooking Lake Ontario as well as featured the LIVE music of the Smooth Blend Orchestra.

Guests were transport to the 1940s to 60s when famous entertainers visited downtown Burlington: Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole Trio, Andy Williams, Glenn Miller, Guy Lombardo, Count Basie, Xavier Cugat, Les Brown, Woody Herman, Lawrence Welk, Fats Waller, Lena Horne, Victor Borge, Andy Williams, Liberace, Stan Kenton, Jayne Mansfield, Patti Page, Martha Raye, Sophie Tucker, The Ink Spots and more!

Plus, what a special moment with a young lady who came up at the end of the event, Cynthia, who had taken Salsa lessons 10 years ago at danceScape during a difficult time in her life. It was such a beautiful moment to reconnect and then dance as if no one was watching, 10 years later!

Included in the ticket price were hors d’oeuvre & drinks! In partnership with @pepperwood.downtown and @danceScape and sponsored by @southriverbrewingco@nothingbundtcakes@13thstreetwinery@smithsfuneralhomes, Tim Dobbie, @revera_inc@williamsburgretirement. #shallwedance?
