Third Saturday Swing Dance

  • urban movement arts 2100 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19103 United States (map)

Every third Saturday of the month we host a Swing Dance. The night begins with a beginner and intermediate lesson (simultaneous) and is followed by a dance party that goes until midnight. All are welcome to join- no partner necessary! The parties are friendly and inviting for people of all levels of experience.

Where: Urban Movement Arts - 2100 Chestnut St. Philadelphia, PA (Rittenhouse area)
Enter on 21st st next to Poi Dog. 
FYI: there are stairs, no elevator.

When: Lesson 8-9 PM Lesson // 9-12 PM Dance Party

DJs 🎧: Marjorie Bartell and Steve Fox! 
We're really stoked to have Marjorie DJ'ing for us, especially given her commitment to highlighting and celebrating jazz musicians of color! Marjorie dances Bal, Lindy, and Blues, so you can expect an awesome mix of genres and styles, but all Lindy danceable!

Traveling through infinite revolutions of time searching for the one critical inconsistency, Steve Fox, Ageless Being, is our other DJ.

Lesson: Brand New Beginner Drop In 8-9! with Heather & Friends. 

💥Sampler Class is Back!💥
Prepare to upgrade your Charleston 1,000% with Sanchel Brown's Bmore Afro class. Baltimore Club music is fast, punchy, and motivating. Sanchel is a Baltimore native who grew up the club and house styles, and has also studied many forms of African Diasporic dance, including an apprenticeship with Urban Bush Women. Ever heard of the Sponge Bob? It's super similar to a squat Charleston! Check out Sanchel breaking it down. This class will make you sweat so bring an extra shirt! 

🏆Friendly Competition🏆
Solo Jazz & Charleston! Show off your fast feet and saucey solo moves. Our comps are goofy-spirited and beginner friendly. Come get it!
