September 5, 2019 - September 26, 2019


5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

MetroTech Commons
Flatbush Ave at Myrtle St
Brooklyn, 11201

This weekly dance series, in partnership with prominent bands, teachers and members of the NYC swing dance community will bring movement, live music, and joy to MetroTech Commons in Downtown Brooklyn. The evening will begin with a half-hour long dance class, taught by beloved teachers within the Swing community, followed by two sets of live music from a different swing band each week.

As swing grew in popularity around the country, the epicenter was NYC, the birthplace of Lindy Hop. Join us for live music and social dancing, hosted each week by MC Dandy Wellington, featuring the best bands, DJs, and dance teachers in the Big Apple.
