Swing Town

| April 24, 2012 | Parties

THE SOIRÉE Swing dancers took over the dance floor as they jumped and jived their way across the Dallas Museum of Art, setting the mood for the Roaring ’20s-themed Glory of the Age: An Affair of the Art 2012, sponsored by Modern Luxury Dallas. As Top Band played a mix of jazz, ragtime and modern day hits, there wasn’t a flapper there whose skirt wasn’t swishing. THE CROWD The Junior Associates Circle of the DMA and chairs Shonn and Clarence Brown hosted the aptly themed event in support of the museum’s latest exhibition, Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties. Guests such as DMA Director Maxwell Anderson, Veronica Roper, Jennifer and Aaron Tobin, and Suzanne and Darrell Wellen, among many others, joined the festivities for an exclusive sneak peek at the new show. DANCIN' SHOES Sticking to the ’20s theme, Rusty Glenn Designs took the museum back through time with Gatsby-esque décor, and Cinco Vodka concocted a “Gangster Gimlet” (Prohibition be damned!) that had everyone happily imbibing. So when dancers from Dallas Swing Society ended the evening with a choreographed Charleston, there were more than a few partygoers who joined in. Photography by Bruno
