Carla Crowen

Carla Crowen has been teaching Lindy Hop and other forms of vintage swing dancing for over 20 years, traveling the globe as an invited instructor and artist of swing dancing. As creator and director of The Rhythm Lounge / Lindy Central, she is working hard to cultivate a strong community of dance in the Central Pennsylvania area.

Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five

Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five are silly, passionate people who love playing this music. And that’s all there is to it! They draw upon the intensity of powerhouse vocalists, the ingenuity of 20th century composers, and the soul of the dance floor.

Since the fateful day Chelsea invited five friends to play some tunes in a South Philly dining room, she's been living the dream of singing her favorite songs for audiences that love the music of Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday as much as she does.
