HONESDALE — Get out your dancing shoes — swing music is coming to The Cooperage.
The Little Big Band of Milford will play the music, and swing dancer Anne Johansen will teach some steps.

In addition to writing most of the arrangements, Dedrick is also a singer and composer. The group specializes in swing tunes like "In the Mood," "Moonlight Serenade," and "Take the A Train," along with classic dance music like cha-chas, waltzes, tangoes, and ballads.
