We're excited to announce that we're slowly resuming dances and lessons!
The home of social swing-era dancing in Columbus, OH
Who are we?
SwingColumbus is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit educational and social organization.
We preserve, study, teach, enjoy, and evolve swing-era dance forms.
This refers to (but is not limited by) a group of American Rhythm dances stemming from vernacular African-American dances that co-developed with swing jazz music of the 1920s – 1940s. Social swing dance has 6-beat and 8-beat 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 frequently, and can’t wait to meet you!
We especially need leads if we’re to resume dance lessons.
