Be My Jazz Baby Workshop Weekend

January 20-22, 2012
Norfolk, Virginia

Collectively, instructors Michael Gamble, Jaya Dorf, Adam Speen, and Abigail Browning have gathered a vast pool of dancing and Lindy Hop knowledge from their years of dancing, teaching, DJ’ing and organizing. We asked them…

“If you had the chance to analyze your experiences and boil them down to key observations that you would teach if you had only one workshop weekend…what lessons would you pass along to dancers?”
The Southside Stomp is proud to present…

Instructors – Michael Gamble and Jaya Dorf, Adam Speen and Abigail Browning


The “bee’s knees” doesn’t even begin to describe Drew Nugent & The Midnight Society! Playing in any venue from collegiate dances to the back alley speakeasies, these boys get the joint jumpin’! They have, under Drew’s leadership, become the hottest hot band on any bandstand in all the land.

The opening 2 minutes of Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society playing NYC’s Jazz Age Lawn Party are pure, raucous, joy and we are proud to feature Drew and his band as our headliners for not one but 2 nights of fun.
Plus DJs:  Michael Marcotte, Abigail Browning, Michael Gamble, Laura Windley, Dan Repsch, and Bill Speidel

  1. Is it possible to just pay for the dances and not do the workshops? I can’t find pricing or registration info.

    • We will have Saturday Jazz Baby Ball tickets available at the door. We are shopping for a larger Friday night venue to see if we can extend that to a full weekend dance pass and will post an update as we have some additional information. Thanks!

  2. I had the same question as Mike about how much just the Saturday dance will be? I also wish I could register online, as I hope it doesn’t sell out…

  3. The Saturday evening dance will be $20 including the late night. There is an option to purchase that ticket individually at

  4. I have one full weekend pass available for the earlybird price of $81 for the first taker. That’s a saving of $19 off the door price. Well, okay, I’ll even knock off the $1 processing fee to make it an even $20! email:
