Home of Swing Dancing in Columbus, OH

Who are we?

SwingColumbus is a volunteer-run, 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 stemming from vernacular African American dances that developed with swing jazz music of the 1920s through the 1940s. Social swing dance is identified by 6-beat and 8-beat patterns.
