Free Teahouse Dances & Lessons in August!

Did someone say FREE OUTDOOR DANCING & LESSONS?

This summer we are throwing a series of free outdoor evening Swing dance parties at the Dushanbe Teahouse in historic downtown Boulder. There will be swing dances on:

  • Sunday, August 12th
  • Friday, August 24th

This is a great opportunity to dance outside while enjoying the summer evenings near Boulder Creek. We will also be offering a free 30 minute swing crash course before every dance for those looking to start out.

"That one time, at dance camp..." What I learned at Camp Jitterbug

"That one time, at dance camp..." What I learned at Camp Jitterbug

“What I learned this weekend is that Lindy Hop is not really about the moves at all. Sure, it feels amazing when we sprinkle in something that makes our partner’s eyes pop. But more than anything, Camp Jitterbug taught me that the greatest joy is in the connection between two dancers, sharing a song and a love for the dance that bridges borders and generations.” Local dancer Lorne Fultonberg reflects on his experience at Camp Jitterbug.

Grandma Can Dance!

Grandma Can Dance!

As the swing dance community becomes more aware of unconscious bias and works to become more welcoming and inclusive of all forms of diversity, I want to talk about age as a factor. I’ve been dancing since about 2007, and over the years I feel like I’m becoming increasingly invisible to people I don’t know.
