Notice to baby boomers and others who love the  1950s.

Put  on your fancy socks and  slick back your ducktails.

Academy for Advanced and Creative Learning is holding a free public  sock hop  6 to 8 p.m. Friday (Sept. 27).

The event will include those oldies but goodies from the 1950s. Music will be by  Loose  Connection.

Dancers from the Ballet Society of Colorado Springs  will demonstrate how to do the Mashed Potato,  Twist, Monkey and Lindy Hop.

Seventh and eighth  graders will perform a special dance to “Rock Around the Clock,” and the kindergarten kids will sing “It’s my Party.”

The charter school’s party will be in the school gym, 2510 North Chestnut.
