Dear Swing City Patrons!

Haven't been at Swing City lately? Well come on back! We just had a record crowd a couple weeks ago for ETTB, and the dances in general have been consistently great. It took a few unfortunate years of bouncing around, but Swing City is BACK IN FORCE! Hope to see you there.

"Black and White"
Friday at Huron Ave

These guys have been playing great shows for us a few times a year now, with rave reviews. Check it out!

Join us this week for another great night of dancing, lessons, friends, and fun times.

Dance lessons at Swing City

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

Join us for a beginner swing lesson, or if you're a more experienced dancer, we offer a concurrent intermediate class. Classes begin at 8pm promptly, so be sure to arruve a few minutes early.

Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent so most of our regular dancers will be able to take a non-beginner class with our rotation of some of Boston's top dance instructors, yet still bring your friends who might be more comfortable at a the intro level. Moreover, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're new to the scene, single, or just feeling social!

The intro class will be single step East Coast, while the intermediate class generally is taught at triple-step levcl. The intermediate class will be different each week, selecting from styles that include Lindy, Balboa, Charleston, and more, and sometimes features guest instructors.

If either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one can just switch to the other one as needed.

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

- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Juice, Soda, and Water available, plus snacks
- Great Floor (one patron was memorably giddy with excitement! 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 12:00pm

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."
