Start off your Perfect Thursday with jazz sets featuring Elizabeth Hayes on voice. Elizabeth is a major vocal talent, and we are very fortunate to have her in Dayton. She has been critically acclaimed and compared favorably to Nora Jones, Stacey Kent, Diana Krall and Peggy Lee. The City paper says, "Her voice is as clear and a bell (yet) wraps you in sound like a warm blanket." Make sure to look for her CD, Touche on Amazon, iTunes or CDBaby, and become a part of history as the Vault provides Liz a home base to expand to the next level. Plan to come now so you will be able to say "I new her when ..."

Make sure that you keep track as we offer a passport to taste sensations that are worth the trip to the Vault. - Perfect

For all of you who say "I don't know how to dance", we have a no cost dance lesson between 7:00 to 7:30. Our dance instructors are so good that if you can walk on to the floor, they can teach you to dance. - Perfect

The dancing starts up at 7:30. We feature social dancing so bring a partner or not. We love to share dance steps and talk about dance. We feature mainly Swing and Latin dancing. Dances styles include Swing, Jive, Jump, Blues, Tango, Bossa Nova, Cha Cha Cha, Rhumba, Bolero, Samba along with the occasional Waltz or Tango. Make sure to come and learn some new steps and meet new people or make is a great night out with all your dancing friends.
