Our Classes

Drop-In Lessons Before Every Tuesday Dance

Need a refresher?  Want to try swing dancing for the first time?  Our drop-in lesson is the perfect place!  No partner and no advance registration is necessary.

Our drop-in lesson admission comes included with admission to our weekly dance, the New Columbia Social.  So once you've learned a few new moves, stick around to try them out!

Series Classes

When you're ready to really dive in to learning the dance, we're here for you. Our full-length class series run every six weeks.

Swing 1 is a single 6-week series that will introduce you to the basics of Lindy Hop, including the standard move patterns, basic footwork, and partnership technique.

Swing 2 is a rotating set of 6-week series that will continue to hone your swing dancing skills by focusing on different topics that will increase your vocabulary, technique, and give you more practice with the fundamentals. Some possible Swing 2 topics include Musicality, Connection Technique, Charleston, or whatever new adventure the instructors dream up!

We also offer shorter 3-week series on special topics. Keep on the calendar or an ear out for announcements at the New Columbia Social about what new topic is coming up!

 Everything is taught by our fantastic team of instructors.
