More About Us
In general, we follow the lineage of Jazz style dances (Tap and Swing) to African, and into urban styles like House. We have a deep regard for many African-American pioneers and authenticity within each dance form. We also host weekly swing dance socials on Friday nights and Saturday nights. Plus, our dancers in Mad Cat Swing teach and perform throughout the city. The space we lease may also be rented, as it is certainly a beautiful wedding venue!
Weekly Lessons Sign-Up
We teach weekly lessons too! If you want to take lessons, this is a good chance to get a vibe of our community here in Edmonton. http://www.sugarswing.com/lessons/

A welcoming, safe, and fun community is what we’re all about! This also requires boundaries and a process for dealing with all levels of harassment. To learn how we empower each other, foster healthy social engagements, please read our code of conduct! http://www.sugarswing.com/code-conduct/
