New Exhibit: HOW BIG WAS "THE TRACK?"



Savoy announces its newest attraction: "How Big Was The Track" is now open and accessible through TP from the Ballroom Foyer.

This exhibit is a SCALE MODEL of the original Savoy floorplan, sized to give SL Avatars the experience of walking in that building.  Big enough to hold 4000 on a busy night, you will be blown away by just how huge it was.  "The Track" was the name given to the dance floor - the biggest and best, where the Lindy Hop was created.

SAVOY Ballroom features weekly themed shows, special events including live singers, DJs, Dance performances, and our monthly "Party in the Past."  Our own SAVOYstream plays 24x7x365 featuring our signature mix of old and new swing, and vintage Latin tunes, along with Old Time Radio ads and Savoy spots.  Check out our MONTHLY EVENTS LIST for details.

Our Savoy Swing Era Museum surrounds the ballroom and presents the history of Swing featuring the bands, songs, and especially dances of that time.  Key dates during the period are also presented.  

Our Savoy Dance 301 Swing Era classroom provides a full-immersion experience of the history, music, and dances of this time.  Class run continuously and you can join in at any time.  We usually have volunteer dance partners present to help you enjoy the class.

Find out more on our website at http://SavoyBallroom.org, or better yet, check it out in SL at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Creations%20Park/33/50/28.

The Swing Never Stops at Savoy.  Step back in time to when Swing was King!
