Beginning Drop-in Swing Lessons

Come learn the basics of swing dancing in our drop-in classes before each dance. Lesson topics vary from dance to dance, but will always cover basic footwork and a couple of different moves.

Each lesson is an hour long and is designed to get you moving and on the dance floor.

Bring a partner or come by yourself; we rotate partners frequently during the lesson. You’re free to choose whether to lead or follow, regardless of gender.

Come join our community.
