A living dance studio and community

Our mission

A living dance. A living studio.
A living community.

In our collective mind’s eye, we see a place that is home to a vibrant and continuously evolving swing dance community.

A place where generations meet, relationships are built, energies are exchanged, history is preserved and created anew.

A place where passion for swing dance is born, is nurtured and where people are encouraged to reach new heights of self-expression.

A place where we are kind to ourselves and kind to one another as we evolve and grow.

We see a thriving, socially responsible, sustainable business that provides the opportunities for people to be what they love, according to their abilities, talents and needs. A living dance. A living studio. A living community.
