Rhythm & Swing and the Roseville Big Band

The Rhythm & Swing Dancers have added visual excitement to Roseville Big Band concerts and dances since 1995. These photos capture some of that excitement from performances over the years. You'll find current photos and more information about Rhythm & Swing and their successors, The Swing Cats, on TC Swing's website, http://www.tcswing.com/.
