Come Swing Dancing!

It's awesome.

We hold free weekly swing dances in the Illini Union (usually Room 314) while classes are in session. Anyone is welcome, regardless of experience!

We also offer lessons. This summer session includes both Intro to Swing Dancing, Thursdays at 6:30, for anyone who wants to start from scratch, and Lindy Hop, Thursdays at 8, for those with some background. Both lessons are held in the University Place Christian Church, at the corner of Springfield & Wright. Enter from the west side, taking the elevator down to the basement.
