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 Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston; authentic partner swing dances in a friendly and welcoming environment! These three original swing dances are characterized by their high energy and joyful nature.

Today there's a vast community of swing dancers that stretches around the globe. It's 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. Join our Monday night Level 1 series at the start of any month. 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 info@boulderswingdance.com

You can join any of our class series the first or second Monday of the month. Our next Level 1 class series will begin on Monday, January 7th in the New Year. 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 at Kakes Studios in downtown Boulder. We also have regular social events, and occasional special events and dances.



January Schedule

Our classes run in a 4-week series that begin the first Monday of the month in Boulder at Kakes studio. You can join a class in either the first or second week of the month, but after that you must wait until the following month’s series.  

In January we have our regularly scheduled Level 1, Level 1.5, and Level 2 classes, along with special guest instructors Bethany Powell and Stefan Durham who will be teaching a special choreography! We kick things off on Monday, January 7th and will have Jeremey Mohney and his Band as special musical guests.

About the Specialty Routine

Bethany and Stefan are incredible dancers who excel at solo and partner dancing. Together, they have travelled, taught, and performed nationally and internationally, and are known for their unique and insightful philosophy of the dance. They have developed a short choreography aimed at our Level 2 and up students that will challenge your dancing and help inspire new ideas and ways of moving. The routine is four weeks long, and there may be a possibility of performing it at the end of the month during the dance. The choreography is progressive, so you must be willing to attend all 4 classes, and you cannot start the second week.
