we went back in time

Last Thursday night, Dance Exchange and friends put on some vintage outfits, put our hair up in pin curls, and got Retro. The evening, Retro Rendezvous, was one of our Thursday night HOME series events happening here at the DX through the Fall (and keep your eyes on our website, we’re finalizing our Spring lineup and will reveal it very soon!)

Enjoy these photos from our evening of swilling retro cocktails (courtesy of the amazing Alex Pile) and learning to swing dance (courtesy of our own dear Wayles Haynes).

and last but certainly not least, a little footage of Wayles and her husband Jason showing some of their sweet swing moves!
