Our Mission

New Columbia Swing is dedicated to creating an inclusive and welcoming community in which we teach, promote, and preserve the art and history of Lindy Hop, other swing dances, and swing music.


What we do

We swing dance! We teach classes for people of all backgrounds and skill levels, from beginner to advanced. We provide and encourage social dancing to put skills into practice, enjoy swing music, and build connections with the greater swing dance community.


Our Values

  • Community: We foster community connections at our dances, across the District, and throughout the region, both on and off the social dance floor.
  • Inclusion: We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment and we make space for all to participate.
  • Excellence in education: We are committed to high-quality education, helping all dancers excel in reaching their goals.
  • Safety: We value your safety and as such, hold all staff, owners, attendees, and community members accountable to a code of conduct.
