Awkward teenage years

Jason Niesz DJs Tuesday @ The Cellar

In case the head cheerleader didn't invite you to neighborhood party this weekend, we're here to share the cool points and tell you that DC Lindy Exchange is throwing a huge party for its 15th birthday! (eye roll if you read "huge" as "yuge" – you know who you are.)

Much like the freshman that walked onto varsity, DCLX skipped a lot of awkward teenage years and jumped straight up to straight-up legit. Rumor has it there will be dancing and lots of live music at their party, like, lots of live music. So plan your best outfit and we'll see you at the party this weekend.

But first, come pre-game with us on Tuesday at the usual gig. We'll teach you the moves at 8 p.m. and provide the mood at 9 p.m.

This Weeks Classes:

Next Beginner Class: 8-count w. Curtis & Julia, wk 4

Next Inter/Adv Class: Visual Learning w. Jason & Caroline, wk 4

Coming Soon:

Jam Cellar Presents: Craig Gildner's Blue Crescent Syncopators. April 30. Glen Echo

mood swing-out

Mike Marcotte DJs Tuesday @ The Cellar

Doctors are nosy – always wanting to know what hurts, testing your heart rate and asking about your mood swings. Ha! If only they knew how often you deal with mood swings. Music puts you in a mood and you swing it without skipping a beat. You're a clinical case of addiction and your only cure is more of the same drug.

You can count on us to enable that addiction. We've got a Tuesday chock-full of healthy, moody goodness coming right up. The lessons start swingin' at 8 p.m. and the music comes out to play at 9 p.m. See you then!

Snooze

John Mortenson DJs Tuesday @ The Cellar

Never trust a snooze button. Just say no. Don't give in. It asks for an inch and takes a mile. You just want to be accepted in your moment of need, sure – but It has no respect for you. We're just saying this for your good. Because we love you.

We won't be hitting snooze on any of Tuesday's plans. Week two of our series classes commences promptly at 8 on followed by musical majesty at 9 on the dot.

P.S. DCLX is around the corner. Make sure you've got your affairs in order for that one cause it's kinda a BFD.

But do they have wifi?

New Classes! Two DJs!
Mike Marcotte! Suzanne Ducker!

We're not short on amenities. In addition to our classy personnel, gorgeous mansion of a venue and life-changing Lindy Hop lessons, we have wifi. Yes, free wifi. Mic drop.

Not that you'll need said wifi because you'll be too busy enjoying our new series of said life-changing lessons. On Tuesday, Jason and Caroline begin 4 weeks of a class based on methods of purest visual learning with a focus on six-count intermediate variations. Meanwhile, Curtis and Julia will school beginners in an eight-count method series designed to get pupils real comfy with their Lindy Hop home base.

All that begins at 8 p.m. with a 9 p.m. chaser of music. Monsieur Marcotte will be in the DJ booth with an up-and-comer and we'll dance until they kick us out. See you then!

This Weeks Classes:

Next Beginner Class: 8-count w. Curtis & Julia, wk 1

Mixed Signals

Nothing this week!

We need to talk. It's been great between us. We've worked through some rough beats and sweaty temperatures, but we need a break. Don't cry; it's not you! It's totally us – we just need some space.

No, literally. We don't have a space for our usual gig on Tuesday so take our date off your calendar and go see other people. We'll hold it over your head more than Rachel did Ross, but it'll work out in the end. Come back spunky as ever on March 22 for a whole new set of beginner and intermediate classes and fresh perspective on just how much you can't live without us.

Next Weeks Classes:

Next Beginner Class: 8-count w. Curtis & Julia, wk 1

#NeverTrumped

David Soltysik DJs Tuesday @ The Cellar!

Whether you're With Her or Making America Great Again, you're definitely Feelin' the Bern of trusTED taglines as we pick the next prez of A New American Century. Fun fact: the Jam Cellar doesn't have a tagline and we like it that way. That's because taglines are that person at the bar who's just trying too hard – bless their heart – and thankfully, we've never had that problem.

Turns out we don't have to push a product because people like what they get when they're with us. And then they tell their friends. And their friends tell their friends. And then, all of the sudden, we have a naturally diverse group of bonafide Americans fired up and voting to keep their Tuesday's filled with the inalienable right to dance. *cue patriotic montage*

This Weeks Classes:

Next Beginner Class: 6-count w. David & Chelsea, wk 4

Next Inter/Adv Class: Kick it Up A Notch w. Jeff & Kelly, wk 4
