Let's Dance

If you're ready to dance today, let's do this.  We have regular classes every week at every level, whether you're completely green (it's not easy, we know) who might mistake a "rock step" for a heavy metal glam band stage maneuver, or you're a seasoned social dancer looking for inspiration, technique, and self-expression: We have you covered.


Thursday Nights: Lindy Hop

Beginning Lindy Hop - 6:00 pm

This is a month long progressive series for the beginner Lindy Hopper. We start from square one, teaching the basic rhythms, footwork, and technique. By the end, you'll have several classic moves to use on the social dance floor! Each class builds upon the previous one, so sign up for the whole month!

Intermediate Lindy Hop - 7:00 pm

Once you have the basics nailed, hop on up to this class! There will be a theme for the month: all classes will tie into that theme. Check out the calendar to see this month's topic!

Swing teams

This is the place to really dig into your own dancing: find your own voice, build the community, work on challenging material, and find out how much you really can do with hard work, patience, and practice!  It's rewarding and fun!

We have two teams at two different levels:  The Mercury Retros and QuickSilvers, and both represent the Mercury Cafe!
