Jumptown is dedicated to educating our community on swing dancing, primarily Lindy Hop. We host weekly social dances and group classes. When we can, we bring in live bands and professional instructors. And we always have a LOT of fun!
Our favorite brand of swing dance, the Lindy Hop, is a versatile dance ranging from fast and athletic to smooth and sexy, depending on the music and your mood. Born in Harlem, it is now the dance of a worldwide community that welcomes new dancers from all over the globe. Its flexibility allows for all types of people to experiment with a wide array of self-expression and truly develop their own style.
We do other swing & jazz dances, too, including East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa, and some solo jazz, including line dances.
Swing dance is a social dance where we aim to connect and engage with others. We regularly switch partners and partnering is not assumed to have a romantic context. Learning the etiquette of social dance can help you safely and respectfully enjoy our community.
