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. You can join either our Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday night Level 1 series at the start of any month (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 firstname.lastname@example.org
You can join any of our class series the first Monday Tuesday, or Wednesday of the month. 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 three locations. Mondays are held at Kakes Studios on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, our Tuesday classes are held at East Simpson Coffee Co. in Lafayette, and our Wednesday classes are held at SKEYE Brewing in Longmont. We also have regular social events as well as an open practice times for people to work on their dancing.
Our classes run in 4-week series that begin the first Monday of July in Boulder at Kakes Studios. You can join a class series in either the first or second week of the month, but after that you must wait until the following month's series. Our Lafayette classes will be taking a summer break. We are also hosting a series of free outdoor dances at the Boulder Teahouse on June 29th, July 6th and 22nd, and August 24th from 7-10pm.
