Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa

Dance All Your Cares Away !!!

Sunday, July 24

Starting at 3:00 PM

Arlington Resort Hotel Crystal Ballroom, 239 Central, Hot Springs 

  The Stardust Big Band continues to attract dancers from states that border Arkansas since Stardust provides fantastic live dance music so often missing in area events. 

Though Stardust performs for many weddings and special events their impetus is on providing a live dancing experience each month at the Arlington Hotel and Spa.

Admission is only $10, but is free for students 18 years and younger.

Dancers from Memphis, St. Louis, Texarkana, Austin and Houston continue to frequent this monthly event to enjoy and practice their dance routines. 

The evening’s entertainment promises as much for viewing as dancing since area dance instructors bring their students to practice dancing in a live musical venue.

This powerhouse 17 piece big band, organized in 1982, is the only big band consistently performing in Arkansas.  The popular TV show "Dancing With The Stars" would be hard pressed to compete with some of the professional dancers that attend this event !!!  Come and see for yourself!!!

A very short bio on the Hot Springs Jazz Society:

 

January 1992 is the birthday of the Hot Springs Jazz Society, and the date of its first official membership meeting.

This organization was founded to perpetuate, preserve and promote the jazz music, an original American art form.

The mission is partially accomplished through a scholarship program that sends qualified music students to the summer jazz camp at the University of Arkansas -Monticello.

The mission is further accomplished by providing jazz music events in the Hot Springs area, most notably the free outdoor JazzFest concert held every September. 

This year marks the 25th Hot Springs JazzFest and the first time in over twenty years that Jazz and Blues have come together over Labor Day Weekend together.  

The efforts of the Hot Springs Jazz Society have brought national recognition to our jazz events, resulting in increased tourism and nationally known artists requesting performance appearances at JazzFest.


 

The Hot Springs Jazz Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to perpetuating, promoting and preserving Jazz Music, an original American art form. The Jazz Society is funded in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission, Arts on Tour, Weyerhaeuser Foundation and Elisabeth Wagner Foundation along with numerous other corporate and private sponsors.
