Dance Instruction

New to swing dance? Come to the free beginner lesson taught before each dance. Dancers of all levels will learn a ton at our monthly workshops featuring world-class instructors, and private instruction is available for dancers of all levels.

An American Tradition

Just as jazz is often noted as America’s most important contribution to the world of music, swing dancing has been called America’s most important contribution to the world of dance and was the first dance invented entirely by Americans.

The Central PA Swing Dance Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of vintage music and dance. We encourage a friendly and inviting atmosphere where dancers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Come join us!
