Dancing Under the Stars

When: Fri., Aug. 5 2011

Here's the scene: lush gardens, a beautiful date, and a starry night. Now add some swing and big-band music and you'll find yourself Dancing Under the Stars at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron. The night kicks off at 7:30 with a free swing dance lesson. At 8 p.m., the Dave Banks Big Band — 17 members strong — will lay down the swing, jazz, and big-band music beneath a canopy of stars in the manor's Great Meadow. Meantime, small plates and an assortment of beverages will be available for those wishing to round out their high-school dance experience. Tickets are $35, and less for members. Buy 'em at or by calling 330-315-3287. Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is at 714 North Portage Path in Akron. — Hayden
