Dear Swing City Patrons,
Love Dogs" wrap up 2012, on Dec. 8

Thank you Swing City Patrons for a fantastic year,
and we hope to see you
About Date Changes
This coming date change (Dec. 8 vs. Dec. 1) was done
at the request of some of our colleagues to accomodate
a date where they had to move their date to our default
date. In order to be neighborly we have had a policy
of trying to accomodate these sort of conflicts for
several years despite the confusion it always generates.
Swing City certainly suffers in a number of ways whenever
we do it. However, the individuals who run these other
dances have now also told us they intend to run their
dances whenever they choose going forward, with a general
disregard for the impact on Swing City's. Obviously
we're not so pleased by that, especially since we have
gone out of our way so many times, at Swing City's detriment
Therefore, since there is so much confusion when we
change dates, we have concluded that it simply isn't
worth trying to accomodate everyone anymore, especially
when there isn't an air of reciprocity. For 2013 we
have announced that we will stick to our standard schedule
throughout the year.
We really do hate "politics" as we call it
in the organizational ranks and try our hardest not
to expose our patrons to it, but we often have been
made out to be the "bad guys" by not correcting
the misinformation that gets out there.
Thank you again for your support and understanding
for the 2012 changes, and we look forward to a solid
year in 2013!
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
The intro class will be single step East Coast, while
the intermediate class generally assumes you can dance
a triple step and are comfortable with a variety of
basic moves. The intermediate class will be different
each week, selecting from styles that include Lindy,
Balboa, Charleston, and more, and sometimes features
If either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one
can just switch to the other one as needed.
