Saturday in Rittenhouse
Saturday as I strolled through Rittenhouse Park in downtown Philadelphia I noticed a couple of great arts programs utilizing the good weather and a great space.
LAB - Lindy and Blues - www.lindyandblues.com
Normally LAB is holding it down out there on Sunday afternoons for Rittenhop. But they really shine on Tuesdays when they pack the Ethical Society for a free group lesson (no partner necessary) followed by a packed three hour social dance to swing and blues music.
I haven’t been in awhile but if you’re there ask for one of the regulars - Stuart - one of the best dance partners there - hands down.
Dance Philadelphia - Argentine Tango - www.dancephiladelphia.com
On the other side of the park Dance Philadelphia holds a captive audience with “Tango In The Square”. Every 2nd & 4th Saturday, 5-8.
