After 15 1/2 years hosting Sunday Dances and welcoming thousands of swing dancers from all over the world to Tampa’s Biggest Swing Dance at the Zendah Grotto, Swing Gang will be saying goodbye to this building. The Grotto Club is getting ready for sale.
In 1949, Zendah Grotto purchased this surplus Air Force mess hall from the US Government in Drew Park. They then began to remodel it for dances, club meetings, boy scouts, civic meetings and even a voting station for years…. For decades the Zendah Grotto has housed the best floating hardwood dance floor in Tampa, and with the help of the internet the Zendah Grotto is famous among swing dancers all over the world.
Swing Gang will continue to do swing dance events in the Tampa Bay area, so keep your subscription with the Swing Dance News for all the latest and the greatest. MOST OF ALL, we only have two Sundays left at the Zendah Grotto.
This week is Sunday MAY 24th and Swing Gang will host a Big Swing Dance Party on Memorial Day Weekend with DJ Paul, Tom, Katy, Randy, Jeila and all the rest of the crew. There will be CAKE! Don’t miss it.
The last Sunday is MAY 31st and it will be a Grand Reunion Finale like we have never had before. You will see dancers that haven’t been together in forever to re-experience the good times and honor and say goodbye to this historic swing dance venue.
Let’s make these last two Sundays at the Grotto the very best!
—See you there—
