What is Swing Dancing?
Swing dancing is a group of dances that developed in the 1920's, 30's and 40's. These dances were originally done to swing jazz music, which has a syncopated rhythm.
Swing dancing experienced a revival in the 1980's and 90's and is a fun way to stay active and to socialize. Swing dancing is enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds around the world today.
Learn to Dance!
A beginner East Coast Swing lesson is held from 8-9pm before every dance. The cost of the lesson and the dance is $5.00 for members (or affiliates) and $7.00 for non-members(cash only please). Workshops are $10.00 for members (or affiliates) and $15.00 for non-members. This include the price of the social dance.
