SwingColumbus is happy to announce we will have a BIGGER space and FREE PARKING for our weekly dances! Join us at the Big Room Bar in the Brewery District starting in February!

Our dance will be at the CD 102.5 Big Room Bar near the south Brewery District area. It’s a great space for live music, and we’re excited for the opportunity to contribute to the music and dance scene in the area!

Haven’t danced before? No Problem. A beginner lesson is included in admission and will get you started to dance the rest of the night. No partner necessary.

Be prepared to switch dance partners often! We’re a social dance club and the best way to work on your social dancing is to learn how to connect with different dancer styles and levels of experience.

All About Our Swingin’ Wednesdays

  • We rotate several DJs so the music is never stale.
  • We host a beginner lesson from 7:30 – 8 PM.
  • No partner necessary! We change partners during the lesson for lots of practice.

Our dance floor can get crowded, so please watch out when attempting aerials and low dips.
Please cooperate if we have to ask you to wait until later in the night when the floor clears so you have space for your special moves.
