Step Back in Time to the Swing Era


CP Swing Ballroom, Classroom and Museum is a reimagination of the Swing Era in Second Life (1932-1948.)  Our ballroom is modeled after the Harlem Savoy Ballroom at its heyday. CP Swing features weekly themed shows:
Monday: Back to the Future of Swing (Electro, Neo Swing) with DRU
Tuesday: Swing Jazz with Earl “Fatha” Hines and Make Believe Ballroom with Martin Block
Wednesday: The Rat Pack and Bourbon Street Beats with Mist
Thursday: Our Favorite Year of Swing (hits from 1 year) with MAKA

We also have a monthly “Party in the Past” celebrating a specific date in Swing Era history.  These include live performers as well as our weekly show staff guides.

Our 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 brand new 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.

+++++++++
Virtual Montmartre is the sister sim of Virtual Harlem. The University of Paris IV-Sorbonne funded the development of these sims in 2004. The relationship of Montmartre to Harlem is clear to scholars of the Jazz Age/Harlem Renaissance, for it was in that Jazz was introduced and popularized in Europe by African American troops who fought under the French flag in World War I. These prestigious sims have been cosponsored by the National Black Programming Consortium and the Government of Norway for the development of Virtual Harlem and Virtual Montmartre in Second Life. They continue to be educational sims frequently being utilized internationally by RL students, SL artists, filmakers, writers, and faculty.
