Menlo-Atherton High School Big Band Dance is all about the swing and lindy
The clock got turned back last night in Ayers Gym at Menlo-Atherton High School with members of the advanced jazz, concert (pictured below), orchestra and intermediate bands led by Kent Kurrus performing music for attendees more intent on doing the lindy or the fox trot than current dances. The 29th annual fundraiser provides the M-A music program with equipment, materials and the funds to attend competition events
People who were new to old dances got instruction from professional dancers provided by Cheryl Burke Studios. Cheryl, known for her appearances on Dancing with the Stars. is an M-A grad.
