Boulder Swing Dance’s cadre of experienced instructors playfully lead students of all skill levels through swing-dancing classes in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Dancers can select from three class levels to suit their abilities, starting with Level 1, in which feet master dancing fundamentals and explore the charleston, and bodies overcome having four left feet. In Level 2, students further hone these skills and learn six-count lindy variations, and the third level of classes constantly rotates lessons in vocabulary and technique to fine-tune dancers’ already impressive feats of fancy footwork. Each Saturday, Boulder Swing Dance throws shindigs soundtracked by expert DJs, where students mingle and show off their rug-cutting techniques in a relaxed, real-world setting. Dancers can arrive solo and ask a similarly skilled attendee to lindy hop or help a timid broom master complex balboa steps.

For the instructors at Boulder Swing Dance, their passion fuels their career. Each of them is a professional dancer, and many of them have collected awards in competitions. They funnel all their experience and enthusiasm into each dance lesson, always shaking to spread their passion for the art form. They start small, breaking down complex lindy hop, charleston, balboa, and swing moves into simple steps and rhythm patterns that single students and couples of all abilities can retain and perform. As their students progress, instructors incorporate more than just steps, encouraging students to break out of their shells and express their own playfulness and musicality by customizing each step. Students can also practice their new moves at weekly dance parties, where they can boogie down and perform high-energy swivels in a judgment-free environment.
