Looking for a way to learn a vintage swing dance?  Have you learned ballroom swing, but well, it just isn’t what you wanted?  Bozeman Swing believes that everyone can swing and that it should be fun and creative right from the start!  Swing dancing is a great way to express yourself while meeting new people, being active and having a super fun time!  Come join the hep crowd.

Intro to Vintage Swing – This 3 lesson series will be starting Jan 25th – Feb 8th at the newly restored and beautiful Rialto! This class series will be getting you a great foundation for dancing with a focus on triple rhythm foot work basics, lead and follow techniques, and well, fun! By the time you are finished with this series you should feel comfortable getting out on the social dance floor practicing the basics. This is a great series to take if you just want to learn how to dance and perfect if you want to get a solid foundation to start learning more of the vintage styles of swing like Lindy Hop.
