First Friday

Thank you for 23 years wonderful years of dancing with us.

The tradition of First Friday was an incredible way to welcome new dancers to the swing scene. And, Chicago is so lucky to have Traffic Jam Swing carrying on the tradition with "Second Saturdays". Visit for all the details.

First Friday is a casual evening of great instruction, fantastic music, and wonderful people.

Upcoming Dances

My first visit to BCS was for First Fridays dance party. The evening starts with a lesson for beginners. I’ve taken an array of lessons in the past and their intro lesson will get you out on the floor with confidence. You’ll learn the basic step and a couple moves to twirl your way around the floor. After the 45-minute lesson, they have DJs to play some standards and likely some tunes you’ve never heard with an infectious beat.
