Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Sugar Swing (2005) offers swing dance classes (Lindy Hop, Blues, Balboa) and dance events. The primary goal of Sugar Swing is to encourage a social atmosphere and to promote a warm, welcoming environment for all people. Sugar Swing is open to anyone: no partners required, no dance experience necessary, and no age boundaries!
Sugar Swing believes that dance should be fun. We hold in high regard good swing music, a supportive community, caring social event organizers, and helpful, skilled instructors to further our students. We believe that everyone can dance, regardless of age or experience. Socializing and community is integral to who we are, and we believe dancing should perfectly combine incredible music, art, and a fun atmosphere!
We bring people together by offering classes and events. We involve the public by frequently performing and teaching outside of our ballroom’s walls. Our services provide a platform for both artistic expression and social gathering. Click here to get to know our wonderful staff and instructors.
The Sugar Foot Ballroom is Sugar Swing’s ballroom! It’s a beautiful space located in the Whyte Avenue area, and boasts a sprung dance floor.
We offer weekly dance lessons in a variety of dances, and we host a popular dance events every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Our specialty is swing dance, especially Jive, Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston. We offer Vernacular Jazz and Tap under the Sugar Swing umbrella too. Also we are expanding our offering of dance forms under our Sugar Foot Ballroom name while keep our same values. Under that name, we sometimes have African, Blues, Ballroom, and Contemporary classes and events!
