Step back to the 1940s, when music was the heartbeat of a nation at war. It was a time of America's Greatest Generation, and the music of Miller, Dorsey, and Goodman filled the air. Dress in your best 1940's attire or uniform or just come as you are. The Planes of Fame Hangar Dance and WWII Party lets you jive to the swingin' sounds of the Big Band era in a hangar surrounded by rare and authentic WWII aircraft.
Don't know how to swing dance? Don't worry - we have dance lessons to teach you how!



Tim Gill All-Stars Big Band!
