Our Classes

We're pleased to offer some of the best instructors and classes around!  Here are some of the things we are up to:

Drop-In Lessons from 8-9pm 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 consists of four rotating 6-week series that will continue to hone swing dancing skills you learned in Swing 1, expand your Lindy Hop move library, and introduce you to other swing dances that you can integrate into your social dancing. You may begin the Swing 2 level with any of these series:

A) Lindy Hop: Musicality and Rhythm

B) Charleston

C) Lindy Hop: Moves and Partnership

D) Balboa and Bal-Swing

We also offer one-off classes and shorter 3-week series on special topics, some introductory and some more advanced. Keep an eye 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.

All Tuesday-night classes run from 8-9pm. You may not be admitted into the classrom after 8:20 pm, so be sure to arrive early to allow time to check in!
