About Us: Swing Dance in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an open, enjoyable dance environment for all of South Florida based in Fort Lauderdale, FL in which to learn vernacular jazz dances such as East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Balboa. We aim to provide high-quality instruction in and information about these historical American dances to preserve them for future generations, as well as to provide a fun, social, and athletic activity for the current generation.
