HANCEVILLE, Ala. –  The Wallace State Community College Jazz Band will hold its annual Big Band Dance on Friday, April 21, at the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts.

The Big Band Dance will be held at 7 p.m. in the atrium of the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. Suggested admission to the event is a $10 donation.
