Hot Cat Jazz Band
Back at Swing City for their once per year appearance, the Hot Cats live up to their name: swing and big-band jazz, it is definitely one of the hottest swing bands on the East Coast. A long time Swing City favorite!

No LINDY WORKSHOP this week

BEGINNER & INTERMEDIATE LESSONS (8-9pm):
- Beginner (Intro Swing)
- Intermediate (Charleston)

 

Dear Swing City Patrons,

"Hot Cat Band" at Swing City this Saturday!

We're only able to get this fantastic band about once per year in the summer, and this week is it! Join us for what will be a great night.

And as usual, Mike's "famous" free, fresh, hot popcorn.

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.
