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.

Learn to swing dance by getting started with our month-long Level 1 Swing series. No Partner needed. We rotate partners in every class. To help you prepare for what to expect in your first class, we have put together a handy guide.

Our Level 1 Swing classes take place on Monday nights at Kakes Studios in downtown Boulder. All of our classes are progressive which means they build on one another. Click here to find out more about our curriculum. 

You can join any of our class series at the beginning of the month. Our next class series starts the first week of October. 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.

We also have regular social events as well as an open practice time for people to work on their dancing. Our classes take place in two locations. Mondays are held at Kakes Studios on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder.
