Lindy Hopping at the Clarendon Ballroom

More than 60 swing dancers packed onto the Clarendon Ballroom dance floor Tuesday night as the Fabulettes — a trio of singers with polka dots and hair that would make Snooki jealous — sang hits from the ’50s and ’60s.  Most of the dancers were members of the GottaSwing beginner and intermediate dance classes led by Tom Koerner and Debra Sternberg.

Each Tuesday, Tom and Debra teach a beginner’s class at 7:00 p.m. followed by an intermediate class at 8:00 p.m. and a dance open to the public at 9:00 p.m. Admission for dancers who are not attending a class is $10.

Note that the moves in this video of Tom and Debra are not necessarily covered in the beginner classes.

New classes start May 11. Tuition for the eight-week session is $125.

A live band performs every week — next week expect the Jeff Carmella Band to blast some rhythm and blues.

Both singles and couples are welcome, says Tom.

“We’ve had over 147 couples get engaged after meeting at one of our lessons or dances. Even if you’ve already got a significant other, nothing says ‘I love you’ better than committing to a relationship on the dance floor. You can always divorce your wife, but not your dance partner!”
