Every Thursday Night, Sugar Swing presents one of two alternating dance parties: The Jump Session and Easy Does It! It’s Sugar Swing’s midweek dance intended for swing and blues enthusiasts, and all-out beginners too. We usually start at 7:30pm and go till 10:30pm. If you’re brand new to swing dancing, this is a great opportunity to meet some of the regulars who come. And if you’ve been swing dancing awhile, come and practice, hang out, and get to know the people of Sugar Swing. Oh, and one other thing — get out and dance! The Thursday dance is a lovely evening where people come to meet friends and decompress from the week.
The Jump Session
We feature two swing dances, Balboa and Lindy Hop, at The Jump Session, and it’s considered our “uptempo” music night where we play medium through fast tempos (though nothing too fast!). We will have two instructors teaching a drop-in intermediate lesson (Balboa or Lindy), as well as a standby instructor to teach a drop-in beginner lesson for newcomers.
Easy Does It
Easy Does It alternates on Thursdays with the Jump Session. It is our “slow tempo” music night, we feature a drop-in intermediate lesson in either Blues or Lindy, and we have standby instructors for beginners who wish to attend. The music ranges from slow to medium tempos appropriate for either blues or slow lindy. This is a GREAT night to practice your dancing in a low-pressure environment.
