What is this thing… they call Swing?

Swing is Dance.
Danced mainly to the swinging style of jazz music from the 1920s-40s, lindy hop is a free, improvised dance with an emphasis on music, rhythm and groove. Slow and sassy or fast and raw, it originated in the Harlem ballrooms of New York in the 1930s. It has a rich and unique history. Most of all, it is a lot of FUN!

Swing is Music.
 Swing jazz – the popular music of the 1920s-40s – is exciting and playful, rich and rhythmic. From the days when people packed dance halls to hear the best bands to dance to, such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey, this music really, really makes you want to get up and dance.

Swing is Community.
We are a welcoming and open community run by volunteers who love swing for the social culture, history and sheer fun of it. Come and join us!
