hey there! we're SwingColumbus

SwingColumbus is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit educational and social dance organization. We enjoy, evolve, preserve, study, and teach swing-era dance forms.These American Rhythm dances come from vernacular African-American dances that co-developed with swing jazz music of the 1920s – 1940s. Social swing dance has 6-count and 8-count patterns, danced to 4/4 music with a “swung” beat.Are you a social swing dancer?
We clap on 2 and 4. We wait to dance “in the pocket,” not on the beat. We switch dance partners and can’t wait to meet you!


Send a note to our volunteer board for more information.


SwingColumbus will respond to your note in a couple of business days. In the meantime, join us on Facebook!
