Professional Performances

Performances: Big City Swing’s performances include wildly dynamic choreography, spontaneous jams, and incredible social dancing. Performances weave together fast footwork and hoppin’ aerials, all with contagious energy. It’s hard for an audience to sit still while watching the couples swing, flip, and spin across the floor performing, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug/East Coast Swing, and 20′s Charleston.

I have taken lessons with Audra, Erin, Jenna, John, Jon, Julee, Luke, and Melissa. All of the instructors, in addition to the subs that have filled in for the regular instructors, are compassionate, well versed in swing dance and want you to succeed. I have always felt welcome from everyone in the studio every time I show up. I am so glad I stumbled upon this studio and picked up a great social skill from some of the best instructors Chicago has to offer.
