About the Event

Queer Swing Seattle's mission is to get folx excited about swing dancing. A lot of times partner dance classes feel really heteronormative. Queer Swing Seattle aims to create space for everyone but especially LGBTQAI+ people to learn about Lindy Hop, Jazz and Swing dancing in a space that is specifically queer positive. The goal is to help foster a strong LGBTQAI+ community in swing dance here in Seattle.  

Join Queer Swing Seattle for this 5 week course ( Mondays from 6:30 to 7:30 on 2/3. 2/10. 2/24. 3/2 and 3/9 ) learning the basics of the original swing dance Lindy Hop! In this class, you will start from the beginning to cover basic steps, patterns and movements. No partner or previous experience is required. 

This is an ELEF style class. "Everyone leads, Everyone follows" means you will be able to learn the skill of leading and following in the same class. You will rotate partners and try the movements from different positions. This will give you the social dance super power of dancing whichever role you like or both in the same dance!   

Each week you will be offered the option to record at the end of class to help you practice at home to grow even faster. Classes are taught without gendered language, by predominantly LGBTQAI+ instructors with you in mind. Name tags for pronouns will be provided and our facility has gender neutral bathrooms. All are welcome!  

If cost is a barrier, please let us know.
