April 17 -- Speakeasy! A night of roaring 1920's inspired entertainment! Prohibition, Jazz, Charleston, Dixieland, flappers, gangsters, the red light district...... We left the Victorian Era with its constraints, rules and prudishness to revel in the full throaty fun of the barely acceptable just-this-side of the wrong side of the tracks. On this evening join coordinator Saviya and guest dancers Draca, Bella, Siraj, Deborah, Anastasia and Madame Sunset as they transform I-Candy into a Speakeasy. Come join us as we leave behind the conventions of polite society and indulge yourself in uninhibited revelry!
