The former Notre Dame church in Pittsfield’s Upstreet Cultural District, now known as the Shire City Sanctuary, is hosting the Shire City Rhythm Club’s evening of swing dancing with the Lucky 5 on Friday (April 15), featuring dancing from 8-11pm and free swing dance lessons from 7-8pm.

The Lucky 5 is a hard-swinging jazz band that blends swing and Gypsy jazz to create a unique, foot-stomping blend of music that appeals to a wide range of music lovers. The Lucky 5 performs both original compositions, as well as putting a new spin on old jazz standards.
