Lindy Hop See U

The dance classes at Apollo Swing are open to people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience. Our instructors are excited to share their passion for jazz dance with anyone willing to listen; our classes are relaxed, inclusive, social, and just a lot of fun! Different styles of dancing and approaches to teaching are celebrated and embraced here at Apollo: swing dances are social dances, defined by improvisation and freedom of expression. Diversity, creativity, and community are at the heart of what jazz dance is all about, and our mission here at Apollo Swing!
