Golden TWIG 10/26/22: SWING Music & Dancing in Guadalajara

This week, our Golden TWIG (This Week in Guadalajara) goes to SWING Music & Dancing in Guadalajara🙏

Why? “Without music, life would be a mistake”, said Nietzsche. When we dance our brain releases endorphins, hormones which can trigger neurotransmitters that create a feeling of comfort, relaxation, fun and power. Music and dance do not only activate the sensory and motor circuits of our brain, but also the pleasure centers.

When: This Friday 10/28, 7-10 pm, TWIG is having its 2nd live social event: SWING, DINNER & BEER TASTING! That's what we call having a Happy Friday!

Where: Cool Beer in the Woods Jazz restaurant


  • It is limited to 36 wonderful people and there are 4 spots left. RSVP is required.

  • At 7 pm we will start with a Swing* dance lesson with teacher Rodrigo Romero. I can assure you for doing it 2 months ago that it is a LOT of fun! No need to have ever dance SWING before. Rodrigo Romero will make you feel you're a natural.

  • 8.00pm: Dine at a table of six where you'll meet new people (There are other great minds in Guadalajara 😉).

  • 8.00-8.30pm: Learn all about beer flavors and aromas! Master Brewer Paco Moreno will teach us everything from grain to malt to aromatic hops, tasting three different beers he created. We will finish the tasting with a quick trip back in time - sampling and learning the history of an ancient drink called MEAD, in a glass.

  • 9.00pm: The Swing* Band "Los Casiduques" will delight you while you converse, dine and dance.

  • The entire evening, all included is just $500 pesos

  • If you prefer non-alcoholic beverages, your beer tasting will be replaced by two artisanal mocktails.

  • Swing or Halloween costumes are welcome but not mandatory.🙂

  • See you on the 28th for this very special night!

Special tip: SWING is a style of jazz that grew from African American roots and dominated American popular music in what came to be known as the Swing Era (from approximately 1930 to 1945). Played by big bands led by such luminaries as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw, swing has a distinctive rhythmic feel.

Emotions you may encounter: Happy. Connected. Playful. Curious. "Anything that makes us *happy* and want to *dance* is worth pursuing", says the TWIG Team.
