Who are we?

SwingColumbus is a not-for-profit educational and social organization. We are dedicated to the preservation, study, teaching, enjoyment, and continuing evolution of swing dance. This refers to (but is not limited by) a group of American Rhythm dances that developed with the swing jazz music of the 1920s-1940s. Social swing dance is identified by 6-beat and 8-beat patterns.

Why Join Us?

Studies show the best thing for your health is to move 30 minutes a day. It turns out taking our drop-in lesson every Wednesday improves your physical, mental, and emotional health! 

Exercising for a better, healthier, happier life? Encouraged.
Moving to great music with friendly people who are your new best friends? Priceless.


Our instructors are advanced SwingColumbus members who teach progressive lessons for the Swingology School. With their guidance you will learn how to find the beat, dance structure, social dance etiquette, and jump from beginner to intermediate faster than you can rockstep!
