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

Saturday, March 29 at Huron Ave:
Bombay Jim and the Swinging Sapphires
Always a Swing City favortite, "featuring the retro-swing music of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer, Cab Callaway, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, and the great standard swing music of Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington. The selections are a mixture of new and old, the old ones being some of the best from the past, from very lively charts. Just plain fun from start to finish."

BEGINNER & INTERMEDIATE LESSONS THIS WEEK:
Featuring:
- Beginner (Intro Swing)
- Intermediate (Charleston)
(see below for more details about the lessons)

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.
