Welcome!


The Illini Swing Society is a group of Champaign-Urbana students and community members interested in Swing-era dances such as Lindy Hop, Charleston, and more!

We hold weekly dances, often with a brief beginner lesson right before, all free of charge.

Twice a semester, you have the opportunity to join one or more of our six-week lessons. Each session, we offer four courses: an Intro to Swing class along side an ever-evolving triad of beginner-to-intermediate courses.

We do events, too. Interested in a fun and easy swing lesson at your wedding or next event? Contact our lessons chair (lessons@illiniswing.org) and we can make it happen!

Feel free to explore the website, contact any of our officers, or e-mail us at our general questions e-mail address (questions@illiniswing.org).

To sign up for our weekly e-mail digest, just send a blank e-mail to listserv@listserv.uiuc.edu with "subscribe SWING-L" (without the quotation marks) in both the BODY and SUBJECT of the e-mail. Our server will take care of the rest. Note that our list advertises not only our own dance events, but events throughout the region.

Find us on facebook, twitter and youtube, too!
