About Swing Group Classes

In this hour-long class, you will skip, twirl, jump and jive to upbeat Swing music. You will improve your sense of rhythm and meet new friends as we switch partners throughout class. After 45 minutes, we keep the music playing and the floor is yours to practice! All couples and single dancers are welcome. Plus, we’re BYOB!

In our 4-week progressive classes, we start with the basics Swing steps and then learn new tricks and turns! Each month covers one of these 3 styles of Swing: Single East Coast Swing, Smooth Swing, and the Charleston. By the end of 4 weeks, you’ll be able to dance to your favorite big band jazz or pop song! The session ends with a free Friends & Family Showcase on the last Friday of the month. These showcases give you an opportunity to teach your loved ones some swing and show off what you’ve learned!

Our drop-in classes are quick orientations to the world Swing dancing. Dancers of all skill levels will learn something new as we cover basic Swing steps and a cool a spin or two. The class culminates in a swing choreography that you can show off at your next party!

Each class is one hour-long (45 minutes of instruction + 15 minutes of practice time).
