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 November, 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.
You can join any of our class series the first Monday or Wednesday 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.
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.
Boulder Swing comes to Longmont
Starting in November, we will be starting a new Level 1 class series in Longmont on Wednesday nights from 7-8 PM. Following the class will be a short 20 minute practice (free) where you can try out your new moves, hang out with your classmates, and ask the instructors any questions you might have. The material covered in the Wednesday Longmont classes will be identical to the material covered in the Monday classes in Boulder. This means that if you need to miss a Wednesday class you can make it up on Monday (and vice-versa). Want more practice? Now you can take both series at the same time to accelerate your learning.

Our October schedule is below. Next month we will be running two different Level 1 series. The same material will be covered in both series. The Wednesday night series will begin on November 2nd, while the Monday night classes start on November 7th. You can join any series either the first or second week of the month.
