There’s a regenerative culture growing and thriving at the Aruba Club in downtown Las Vegas and it’s not in the men’s bathroom. Check the dance floor.
A cluster of dedicated, free-spirited Lindy Hop dancers form the nucleus of this culture, meeting up at the retro Las Vegas motel and nightclub almost every Friday night for lessons, dancing and socializing. They’re bringing back swing dance and music from the 1920s and ’30s like the Charleston and Balboa and they’re doing it in style.
