Upcoming Events

Practice Sessions - Saturdays at 6:00pm

Sugar Swing is hosting practices in Balboa and Lindy Hop later this month! For a mere ~$5 drop-in fee, keeners and enthusiasts of all levels can participate in an open practice session of 1hr. We will have them hosted by local dancers and will provide some fun, casual direction and exercises during the sessions. Birkley is looking for people to help lead each practices - the commitment would be monthly, along with three other different hosts per dance type. Please email him if you're interested!

SATURDAYS - SUGAR FOOT STOMP

Sugar Foot Stomp is Sugar Swing's weekly Saturday night dance, held at the Sugar Foot Ballroom (10545 81 Ave). The evening begins at 8pm with a one-hour dance lesson for new dancers, and is followed by 3 hours of deejayed social dancing. Cost is $12 with the lesson (non-members), and $10 for just the dance with discounts for members and students!

THURSDAY DANCES

Working hard to bring you variety and social dance, Thursday Dances will either be Jump Sessions or Ivory Blues & Swing nights. Jump Sessions and Ivory Blues & Swing alternates each week. Be sure to check out the Facebook Group for community discussions on the events, or the website for the calendar of upcoming/future Thursday dances.

A Little Inspiration

A note from Krista: New to Sugar Swing, I am just overjoyed with this community. What a wonderful, welcoming, and upbeat group of dancers you all are. If I haven't yet met or danced with you, please don't be shy. I am very happy to be a part of Sugar Swing! From me to you: "Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion." - Martha Graham Check out this Lindy Hop Finals competition from 2006, if you haven't already seen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myJj0mNNe1Y
