Swing Dancing Every Friday Night

Only $10 on DJ Nights and $12 – $15 on Live Band Night for Lesson and Dancing

Friday is the night for swing dancing in Sacramento! Held in our beautiful dance studio the Spotlight Ballroom. Each week people of all ages and walks of life dance the night away to best Swing, Jazz, and Blues music in Sacramento. You’ll even catch live music once or twice a month ($12 – $15 cover charge depending on the band) featuring the bands from around the world.

Some of the musicians in the bands we bring in have played with such legends as Keely Smith, Etta James, Chick Corea, John Lee Hooker Jr., Charles Brown, and many more. Our DJ nights ($10 cover charge) feature a wide variety of music that includes something for everyone. Song requests are always welcome, just talk to our DJ!

You never need a partner because our dances are extremely social and you’re sure to make great friends at Midtown Stomp. The dance runs from 9:00 pm to 12:00 am and there is an introductory lesson at 8:00 pm which is included with your cover charge. We also offer Group Swing Dance Classes for those who want to take their dancing to another level. Come out and join us every Friday night!

June 28th – Stompy Jones – $12

Ah, Stompy Jones. Without this great band, we wouldn’t have live music at Midtown Stomp. That’s a story for another time though. Stompy Jones has played all over the place for dancers, festivals, and for anyone who likes great music. They are also regulars at Disneyland. Their Jump Blues style of music is a throwback to 40s and 50s when people were partner dancing as a regular social activity. Little Davis Rose and the boys are incredible and you’ll be dancing till your feet are sore!
