Let's Swing out

Our mission at Swing Nights is to inspire, to pass on our knowledge and love of Swing to future generations, and to build a strong nurturing Community based on the principles inherent in Jazz music and Swing dance: Rhythm, Connection, Improvisation, and Self-Expression.

We aim to provide a safe space for everyone to come together, celebrate life through quality of movement, connection, and touch.  Through dance, we can explore individuality and movement in a non-judgmental way and unwind from the troubles in our lives with genuine fun.

We're committed to building a Community on the dance floor that can bolster our daily lives.  The dance brings together people socially from all walks of life, generations, and people groups, and can tie us together in a bond that can elevate everyone both on and off the dance floor.

We are committed to continually learning and bringing the highest quality of instruction to our students, who always come first.  We have a passion for documenting and preserving the good times we have together through photography and video.

You feel the music, you feel your partner, she feels you and she feels the music. So there the three of you are together. You’ve got a triangle, you know. Which one do you love best?
