"Hosting fine Swing and Lindy Hop Dancing in Boston since 1994"

Saturday, December 27 at Huron Ave:
Sax Gordon & the Little Town Rockers
Highly sought after, "Sax Gordon & the Little Town Rockers" are one of the most exciting and in-demand swing dance bands carrying on the great tradition of American Rhythm & Blues Saxophone. With astonishing ability and virtually unmatched energy, Gordon brings rocking sax workouts and swinging classics alive like none other.

On account of the holidays.
(That may change, so stay tuned for an announcement by Friday)

- Beginner (Intro Swing)
- Intermediate (Charleston)

Dear Swing City Patrons,

Post Holiday Dance with "Sax Gordon" this Saturday

"Sax" Gordon is back this Saturday for a RARE appearance! If you haven't seen him gig, he is simply an amazing musician and the reason you don't get to see him often is he travels around the country most of the year. Don't miss him with his swinging band, the "Little Town Rockers."

Cover is $16 as usual, and includes the 8-9pm lessona as well as Mike's popcorn and cotton candy.

Please note, at present there is NO Lindy workshop scheduled this week from 6-8pm on account of the holiday, but that _may_ change. Stay tuned.

Hope to see you there!

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 assumes you can dance a triple step and are comfortable with a variety of basic moves. The intermediate class is different each week, generally Charleston. We sometimes features guest instructors.

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