A Chat with Swing Knights
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Swing Knights has driven the swing dancing scene in Orlando for over 15 years and is one of the largest destinations for swing dancing in Orlando, FL. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide quality, professional dance lessons by National Dance Champions.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Relax! Dancing is fun, and easy. A swing dancer’s fundamental dance steps should feel as easy and as natural as walking. Swing dancers dance a lot, so if dancing was hard or tiresome, they wouldn’t be able to dance all night long!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Swing Knights wanted to provide a safe and fun environment for students and the community to learn swing dancing, with our goal being to teach and spread awareness of swing dancing in Orlando. This started with the revival of the 1930’s swing era dances in the 1990s.
What do you love most about your job?
The people you meet dancing; the connections you create with people from many different backgrounds that all come together to learn and dance with one another.
