Since 1994, GottaSwing has set the standard in swing dance instruction by offering eight-week progressive (meaning we build upon material from previous weeks) beginner and intermediate Lindy Hop and Jitterbug classes, as well as a variety of special topics designed to broaden your swing dance world.

You never need a partner! We rotate partners in our classes so everyone gets lots of opportunities to dance and practice in class. All ages are welcome.

We work hard to create a warm, friendly, and welcoming environment. Besides learning to dance, you’ll find a new social world to explore and enjoy with ongoing dances as well as special events.

Weekly Classes

No partner needed! We rotate partners in our classes, so everyone gets lots of opportunity to dance and practice in class. The linchpin of Gottaswing is our eight-week beginner and intermediate classes. In our beginner level, you will learn the essentials: six-count, eight-count Lindy Whip and Circle, and both side-by-side Charleston and Back Charleston. Our intermediate classes build upon the essentials and are infinitely variable, so you can keep coming back for more. While the beginner series is always the same, instructors do material of their own choosing in the intermediate level, so you can enjoy lots of different input, approaches, and variety. 

Special Classes

Want to join our dance team, the Eight Week Wonders? Concentrate on Balboa? Learn aerials with your dance partner? Specialty classes allow us to present all sorts of fun and interesting topics that are designed to broaden your dance repertoire and improve your skill level and dance technique.



The Big Day looms, and you realize you’re not ready! Our instructors can help you learn enough to get ready for your first dance, brush up your skills, add a little pizzazz. We can also help you with song selections, DJ services, band recommendations, a short beginner lesson and swing demonstration at your wedding. Contact
