Boulder Swing Dance | Social Dance

**Currently on a break for the remainder of 2022**

Learn Lindy Hop and Charleston, the original dances of the swing era! Swing dancing is joyful, free spirited, and infectious. It’s unabashedly fun with a carefree style that closely reflects the music of the late 20s hot Jazz to the 40s Big Band music. You’re going to love it!

Lindy Hop and Charleston are partnered social dances but you don’t need to bring your own partner. We rotate during the class so that you have a chance to meet and dance with many different people.

Our inclusive and friendly beginner classes run in 4 week progressive series on Monday nights at 8PM. A new series begins at the start of the month (check the schedule below for more details). We offer a beginner special–register online for our Level 1 class and get $15 off the door price.
