There is a lesson to start off the evening which is included.

Uptown Swing is held each month at Brookline Tai Chi, conveniently located on Beacon Street directly across from the Washington Square T stop. The floor is smooth and excellent for dancing, the AC will be cranking, and street parking is

New Session Lindy Hop/Swing Classes in Newton and Boston

Our new 6 week session of Lindy Hop classes started last Sunday and Monday, and as always, it is still possible to join in the 2nd week. Classes for this session include Beginner Swing/Intro to Lindy Hop Level 1 and Lindy Hop Level 2. These classes are offered both on Sunday evenings at the Newton Lower Falls Community Center and on Monday evenings at the Ruggles Baptist Church in Boston.
Also on Sunday in Newton, we have a new class for intermediate to advanced called Frankie’s Favorites, dedicated to the wonderful Frankie Manning. Everyone got into the spirit at the first class and we are really looking forward to a fun session!

Classes were fairly balanced for the most part, but it would be great to get some more leaders for Level 1 in both locations and maybe a couple of followers for the Frankie’s Favorites classes. Just get in touch if you have questions about any of the classes.

Full information, on-line registration and directions are available at:

Skye Humphries & Naomi Uyama Lindy Hop Workshop Weekend

Mark your calendars for the return of Skye and Naomi! A weekend of Lindy Hop workshops is planned for November 26-28. There will be classes for all levels in both our Newton and Brookline locations. Uptown Swing will be on for that Saturday with the always fabulous Gordon Webster, accompanied by the multi-talented Naomi Uyama on vocals. Now that is a special treat! Full details and registration will be available very soon.

Hope to see you at Uptown Swing this week!

Happy dancing,
Aurelie & Tony
