Attire: Wear casual comfortable clothes to stay cool. It’s good exercise. This venue has a concrete floor. Shoes that work best on this surface are leather or chrome bottom (like on the bottom of dance shoes) and some exercise shoes that don’t stick to the floor. You must be able to turn or spin in your shoes.
General: No masks or vaccines are required to attend. Liability waivers are required as you sign in. After signing your waiver, you will receive either a blue band that indicates you wish to social dance with others or an orange band that indicates you only wish to dance with your partner. You may change your mind and your band at any time during the dance. We encourage social dancing since you learn much more and make more friends when you dance with others. Refreshments available for cash donation.

Dancing in the Charlotte area typically includes Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa, and Blues. We think you’ll find CharlotteSwingDance.com swing dances to be very welcoming to newcomers Dances always include an intro lesson to get new dancers up and dancing. Most dances held on the 2nd Friday. Our schedule usually adjusts to Saturdays during November - February as we avoid the basketball season at our regular venue, The Cornwell Center, 2001 Selwin Ave, Charlotte, NC 28207
Just because you can dance doesn't mean you can teach. At CharlotteSwingDance we are both effective teachers and lots of fun! Our students love our classes and they often fill up early. Denise has been teaching swing dancing since 2003 and was joined by Tom in teaching in 8-week sessions in 2013. Together with their love of people, dancing and fun you won't find a better team of Swing Dance teachers in the Charlotte area.
For those who have schedules that don't work for regular group lessons, we also offer private lessons and host various dance events, teach swing dance lessons at wedding receptions, do swing dancing at events to add atmosphere, etc.
