As if this weekend could get anymore jam packed with dance, Community Minded Dance is presenting Lindy Diversion, featuring live music and social dancing events in downtown Denver. Community Minded Dance aims to preserve traditional, American-style dance while keeping it accessible to the community.

The highlight of the weekend will be award winning pianist Gordon Webster. His renowned lindy music is marked by his incredible energy and ability to “pack in a dance hall.” But it’s not just the lindy hop this weekend – there’s a chance for Swing, Blues, and Solo as well.

Virginie Jensen and Steven Mitchell, two giants in the world of swing dance, will also be teaching classes and attending the event. Opening night events, including one this evening, are held at the Turnverien Dance & Cultural Center: 1570 Clarkson St. Denver, CO 80218.  Classes on Friday and Saturday are held at Auraria’s Campus, but check the website for further details.
