Here's what a few of students have to say about our classes and learning to swing dance. This is footage from our annual student showcase opening video.

This place is great. I come with my bf and even if one of us can’t make it to the class that week, there’s usually an option to make up the class on another day or we can come individually – its no problem because everyone rotates so you get to try your moves with different people. That’s definitely necessary if you want to be a good social dancer. We’re continuing to take classes and enjoying actually knowing how to dance at weddings and parties now.

Swing I

This class is for the true beginner. We introduce the concepts of leading and following as well as the basic rhythm and turns of 6-Count Swing. We present the material at a moderate pace – quick enough to keep it movin’ but slow enough to allow plenty of practice time. If you’ve never taken a dance class before, this is a great place to start.

Swing I is $67 for the 4-week class, $62 with the early registration discount.

It can be a little scary for a male, non-dancer to take a dance class. Well, no worries! The instructors are great and help you learn the steps without overwhelming you. I had a blast. You will too.

But I have previous experience?

For those who have taken Swing and Lindy Hop classes elsewhere, tell us a little bit about your experience. We may be able to enroll you in Swing II.
