Swing Dance


Columbia University Swing Dance is dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of the social and solo African American jazz dances of the 1920's-1940's, and the incredible music, cultural history and active community they are linked to. The club provides affordable weekly swing dance lessons covering basics and more advanced material, taught by world-class professionals. In addition to lessons, the club hosts semesterly dances with fantastic live bands and workshops throughout the semester. The club also boasts an audition-only performance troupe, which performs on campus and competes at various events. Lessons are open to all Columbia University affiliates who have a Dodge Fitness Center membership - the atmosphere is welcoming and supportive.
