This fall will mark 2 years since Uptown Swing moved to KI for our monthly dance. We feel very fortunate to have this beautiful space with one of the largest dance floors in New England, plus an excellent location near Coolidge Corner in Brookline. Starting in July, the rent is going up significantly, almost double the current rate. It would be a shame for the Boston community to lose this exceptional venue. Although this necessitates an increase in our dance admission, we will continue to keep our prices as low as feasible. The price will vary depending on the band, with out-of-town and larger bands at the higher end. With your support, we’ll be able to continue to provide many more fun nights at Uptown Swing!
The May 2nd Uptown Swing dance has been cancelled. For now, the October 24th dance is on the calendar, and a decision will be made based on future information.
If you like dancing to awesome music, meeting new people, and having fun, come on out to the monthly Uptown Swing dance! Singles, couples, groups, plus all levels are very welcome. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. A Swing/Lindy Hop lesson is included to start the evening. We have two venues, UPB and KI, each conveniently located a few blocks from Coolidge Corner. Be sure to note the location for each dance.
We are grateful to have found two good venues, however, we’ve not been able to secure a regular Saturday of the month. Hopefully in the future we can get back to a more consistent schedule.
Please avoid wearing perfume, cologne, and scented sprays to the dance as some dancers have allergic reactions. We hope to create an accessible space for everyone to enjoy, and appreciate everyone’s help to make this happen.
