Concert: Fugitive Swing Dance

Event Single

Brought to you by: Fugitive Productions

Event Details

Swing dance is alive and well at Sanctuary in Maynard. Though Fugitive and Sanctuary have hosted countless events that have spotlighted some of the area’s great swing players, now it’s official. This one is for both experienced dancers and swing dance wannabes. Sanctuary, a recently converted church, features a full stage, an enormous dance floor, and one of the best bars west of Boston.


The first hour features instruction by some of the finest performer/instructors in the area. Filling in for Tony and Aurelie Tye this month is Steel Shane. Steele is a professional instructor and dancer, known throughout New England for his clear and easy-to-follow teaching style and his ability to instruct anyone to dance. For more than 30 years, he has worked with hundreds of students and competed and performed in many venues, both locally and nationally. He teaches Ballroom, Country, Swing, and Latin.


Chameleon Eddie Scheer is a Sanctuary favorite, gracing us with his vocal and drumming talents with a variety of groups and styles. He has been a fixture on the New England swing scene for more than 25 years. Whether with his jump blues band The Love Dogs, the 20-piece Compaq Big Band, or various smaller ensembles, his big voice and solid drumming have kept hearts beating and feet moving wherever he plays. The Swinging All Stars is a new unit featuring some of the best musicians in Boston — leaning toward the lighter, jazzy side of swing, but still with a deep connection to and reverence for the blues.
