Welcome, new swing dancers! Our official kickoff is September 6, in Illini Union rooms A/B/C, with a free total beginner lesson at 8 PM followed by social dancing. It's a big event, but we can always make more room, so invite your friends to our Facebook event. If you can't wait, our first weekly dance will be August 28, in Illini Union 314 from 9-11 PM. You can also come meet a few of us at Quad Day, on August 24, starting at noon.

Lessons will begin September 9. If you're just getting started, take either of our 6-week Intro to Swing classes, either on Tuesdays, from 8-9:15 PM, or Thursdays, from 6:30-8:00 PM. For more experienced dancers, we're offering Lindy Hop on Thursdays from 8-9:15 PM. Standard price for a six-week course is is $30, but mention you saw this message for $5 off Intro to Swing (discounts do not combine). All current lessons are held in the University Place Christian Church, at the corner of Springfield & Wright. Enter from the west side, taking the elevator down to the basement.
