Dance legend has it that Lindy hop swing dance is so named after Charles “Lucky Lindy” Lindbergh made his groundbreaking solo flight across the Atlantic.

You too can “hop” into swing dancing with our intro 8-count swing dance series! From Lindy hop to Charleston, you’ll learn the fundamentals of this addictively upbeat American social dance so you can jump and jive to your favorite swingin’ songs from the 1920’s to today (and into the 2020’s). Join us and come see your dancing take flight!

No dance experience or partner needed – just enthusiasm and comfortable shoes! We also recommend a water bottle.
