Swing dancing is a “catch all” term for the dances that originated in the swing era and were danced to swing music. At Boulder Swing Dance we specialize in teaching authentic partner swing dances in a friendly and welcoming environment. Our focus is on Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston—three of the original swing dances that are characterized by their high energy and joyful nature. Today there is a vast community of swing dancers that stretches around the globe. It is a great way to stay fit and meet new people. Check out our Swing 101 page for more information. Need some music to get your feet tapping? Our Music page has got you covered.
Learn to swing dance by getting started with our month-long Level 1 Intro to Swing series. No Partner needed. Starting in January, you can join either our Monday night or Wednesday night Level 1 series (the same material is covered both nights). To help you prepare for what to expect in your first class, we have put together a handy guide.
All of our classes are progressive which means they build on one another. Click here to find out more about our curriculum.
We also offer private lessons. To find out more about private lessons email us at email@example.com
You can join any of our class series the first Monday or Wednesday of the month. We will be taking a break in December, but our next class series starts the back up in early January. If you are more advanced or already have swing experience, then check our schedule and class descriptions to figure out what level is appropriate for you.
Our classes take place in two locations. Mondays are held at Kakes Studios on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder while our Wednesday classes are held at SKEYE Brewing in Longmont. We also have regular social events as well as an open practice time for people to work on their dancing.
The next Longmont Level 1 series will begin Wednesday, February 1st, while the next Boulder Level 1 series will start on Monday, February 6th. You can join any series either the first or second week of the month. Each series runs for four weeks.

Boulder Swing T-Shirts are now available
We are printing up our first batch of Boulder Swing Dance t-shirts. Our new "Lindy Hops" shirt, designed by Natalia Eristavi and Augie Freeman, is a dance pun that also captures the spirit of Boulder with this fun dance pun. These super comfy shirts are from American Apparel and feature a 50:50 blend of cotton and polyester.
We are doing a limited initial run of the shirts. The shirts should be ready for people to pick up in early January. Pre-order yours today.
Join our Dance Ambassador Program
Dance ambassadors play an important role at Boulder Swing. They serve as hosts and points of contact for new dancers, as well as role models in classes. This year we are revamping the program. Now, in exchange for their community service, ambassadors will receive regular private group training sessions from Boulder Swing teachers. If you want to get more involved with the community, fill out an application today. We will be announcing our new crop of dance ambassadors in early February. To apply or to find out more information, check out the dance ambassador page here.
