Dance lessons at Swing City

New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries, we've got something for everyone!

Mike Jonas will be teaching the intermediate lesson this week. Karen Leeds returns to teach the beginner class. Classes begin at 8pm, so arruve a few minutes early. Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent, so you can find a class that suits you and still bring your friends who might be at a different level. Plus, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're new to the scene.

Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venues in town!

- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Juice, Soda, and Water available, plus snacks
- Great Floors (one patron was giddy with excitement recently! thx)
- Easy MBTA Access (bus #72 direct from Havard Square)

8:00pm: Beginner and Intermediate Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until ~12:00am or when people leave

The great thing about the new intermediate lessons program is that the bulk of our regular dancers will be able to take a non-beginner class with our rotation of Boston's top dance instructors, while still being able to bring beginner friends for the intro lesson. The intro class will be single step East Coast, while the intermediate class will be taught in triple-step and sometimes will include some Lindy and more. The intermediate class will be different each week. Furthermore, if either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one can just switch to the other one as needed.

So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live music, dancing, lots of cool fun people of all ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great night out for only $16 ($12 with college ID), and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's official Cheap Date."
