A free swing dance mini-lesson will be provided by Barton instructors Tim Folkerts and Danika Bielek to any attendees who can come early at 7:30 p.m. The Hilltop Singers will provide a special presentation part way through the evening. Light refreshments will be provided.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance by contacting Sara Oberle, Director of Choral Activities at oberles@bartonccc.edu or (620) 792-9395. Proceeds from the dance will help fund the Hilltop Singers spring 2019 tour.

The dance is sponsored by the Hilltop Singers and Barton Community College. Sponsorships can be purchased for $100 or $300, which come with different perks. The $100 level includes a song dedication and two tickets. The $300 level comes with six tickets, a song dedication and a logo listed in advertising and the dance program. Contact Oberle for sponsorship details.
