What is the best way to learn to dance?
The best way to get started swing dancing is with a free half hour introductory
private lesson. This is a great introduction to the dance and to the studio,
and we are happy to discuss with you all of our classes, dances and great
membership options. To schedule your lesson, just give us a call at 916-221-1500 or
fill out the form located here.
Do I need a partner?
Coming out swing dancing is a great way to meet new people. We encourage
everyone to ask new people to dance every night, and we rotate partners
in the lessons. People you meet in the lesson, you've already danced with
and you can easily ask them to dance later in the night! If you already
have a partner and do not wish to rotate during classes that's okay too.
What should I wear?
Wear what is comfortable for you! Some people dress up, some people dress
vintage, and other people wear jeans and a T-shirt. We especially recommend
comfortable shoes or dance shoes with a small heal or wedge.
What is the age range?
We love our venue and location in part because of the fact that we are
regularly drawing a crowd that ranges in age between 16 and 80. We get
many people of all ages every week!
What type of swing dancing do you do?
We are primarily a vintage swing, sometimes called East Coast Swing, and
Lindy Hop venue. We regularly teach lessons in those two dances plus Balboa,
Charleston, Collegiate Shag or many other vintage dances from the 20's
thru the 50's!
How can I perform?
We have regular opportunities to perform with the Midtown Stompers performance
team which has auditions regularly throughout the year. We also have opportunities
to perform is in one of our showcases in December and May. Any of our
instructors would be happy to talk to you about preparing a show piece.
