Bobby McGee’s was a dance that ran from the 1970’s into the 2000’s and was pivotal in the SoCal scene. Not only was it a hub for SoCal’s best dancers, fantastic music, but it was also a place to have great socializing and establishing lasting friendships. Now we are bringing that back for todays dancers. This is a place for for all Swing styles and all levels.
