It was a time like no other – when young G.I. Joes and Rosie the Riveters gave their all to save the world. You’ll be swept away as a guy, a girl, and their friends kick up their heels, fall in love, and most of all… Swing, Swing, Swing!

Created by celebrated Chicago choreographer and showman Harrison McEldowney, this exuberantly unforgettable work was American Midwest Ballet’s very first production. Now, it’s back to help us celebrate the beginning of a new decade of dance!

Featuring live Big Band music by the DoyleMusic Combo!
