A blockhouse known as Fort Concord was constructed on the shores of Lake Concord in 1849. This was the first official establishment in the area. In 1925, Gordon J. Barnett of New York moved to the area and invested in the fern industry, opening his own fernery and purchasing more land. In 1926, a man named Hibbard Casselberry from Illinois was visiting his wife’s aunt in nearby Winter Park, Florida when he met Gordon Barnett and signed on as his exclusive sales agent for an area called Fern Park Estates. The area was pushed south during World War II and eventually merged with other city limits. The new town in its entirety was called Casselberry.

Orlando Swing Dance is Orlando's most popular swing dance group. On the first Saturday of each month, come out to Orlando Swing Dance for a fun night of throwback music and dancing! Don't know how to swing or lindy bop? Don't worry about it--they have a dance lesson about an hour before the open dance session begins. Taught by a rotating list of dance instructors, you'll learn the basic steps, spins, and styles of various swing dances. While most of the dances feature a DJ-spun playlist, at different times during the year they will feature a live band that plays a variety of current and throwback music.
There is a minimal cover charge for the dance, but there's no limit on age or amount of people you can bring, so this is perfect for either a romantic date night or a fun night out with friends. If you'd rather learn by yourself, that's perfectly fine too! There's no partner required. There's no dress code, just dress comfortably and bring shoes you can dance and spin in. Depending on the month, they'll host themed dances--Valentine's Day, Christmas, and New Year's are big events. If you've always wanted to learn to swing dance, or even if you're just looking for something different this month, Orlando Swing Dance is a fun way to learn a new skill and connect with a variety of people.
