Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals. The band has now released 4 CDs and performs over 100 times each year at music festivals, concerts in the park, swing dances, weddings and events of all sorts.

An open group of people from all dance backgrounds (from none to tons!). We get together every week to play and experiment with Fusion partner dancing. We start each dance with some type of movement lesson, from salsa to modern dance to acro-fusion. (Check our calendar for the upcoming classes) Then we all practice, experiment, play and learn from each other during the open dance.
