Big City Swing is Moving!

Stay updated here...

 After 17 years in our beloved loft in the West Loop, our building has been sold to wonderful new owners. 

Unfortunately, we cannot remain in the space long term due to rising rent and the new owner’s plans for the space. But, when one door closes, another opens and this time we'll own our own space. 

Drum roll please... 

Big City Swing will be moving to a new location at 1850 N Western Avenue this fall

Fabulous features of our new location include: 

  • 2 studios on the same floor 
  • Free parking on Western Avenue, Armitage and numerous side streets 
  • Incredible CTA access to the Blue Line Western stop 
  • Easy highway access to the Fullerton exit on 90 
  • Plentiful surrounding cheap eats and coffee shops, including the famous Ipsento and Margie’s Candies 

If all goes as planned, we will begin our January classes in the new space.

Stay Updated!
