The people behind Detroit Gatsby bring you Pin Ups & Privates - Detroit's Ultimate 1940s Swing Dance event!

Immerse yourself in the music, fashion and attitude of the Greatest Generation!
Founded in 1839, the Detroit Boat Club is the oldest such organization in the country. This building, the DBC’ s sixth home, was designed by Alpheus W. Chittenden and dedicated Aug. 5, 1902. The Venetian-style clubhouse sits on the site of the club’ s two previous homes — both lost to fires. Looking to avoid a three-peat, this clubhouse was built as one of the earliest structures in the country built entirely of concrete.
Be a part of this magnificent structure's new history! Come dressed to impress and enjoy Big Band classics performed by crooner Paul King and the Rhythm Society Orchestra, a sumptuous strolling supper and a very well stocked bar! The dance floor is larger and perfectly suited for you to show off your Lindy Hop!
We're very excited to donate a portion of the evening's proceeds to Activate Detroit Potential!

ADP is a non profit organization that partners with for profit companies to provide transferable, marketable skills training while providing transitional housing and holistic support services for at-risk women veterans in Detroit.
