SwingColumbus hosted a monthly dance from 2003 – 2014 in Columbus. In 2015, we moved to a quarterly schedule.

Now revamped as SwingColumbus on a Saturday Night, this event happens every couple of months and showcases a live band and special venue. You are welcome to bring your own beverages, and encouraged to dress up. Dance the night away with us!

This Weekend! Workshop, Dance Party to Live Band, and Open Practice

Join us this Saturday, October 12th! SwingColumbus is bringing you a dance workshop so you can participate in a global dance project, “office hours” to receive casual and fun dance mentoring, and our Saturday evening dance party to a live band.

Learn the Trickeration in honor of Norma Miller

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to be part of the Global Trickeration Project in honor of Swing Queen Norma Miller, and to learn her famous and challenging routine, Trickeration!

The Trickeration routine is a challenging solo jazz routine. No partner required! Students are recommended to have some solo jazz experience. Expect to be challenged and to have the class move quickly.

Dancers from around the world are learning Norma’s “Trickeration” routine and submitting videos for a compilation and live performance on December 2nd at The International Lindy Hop Championships in Washington, D.C. The final edited video will be shown on Norma’s birthday Dec. 2nd at The International Lindy Hop Championships as well as performed live by all in attendance! Use this opportunity to share this routine with others in your community who don’t know it and help us spread Norma’s legacy and inspiring life around the world! Long live the Queen!
