Events Description

Check out a wide range of classes at Sugar Swing Ballroom! Join us for a fun, no-pressure, FREE Friday night! Participate in drop-in dance classes, meet some of the regular dancers, and watch our instructors move their feet!

This is an evening of dancing, with mini lessons of 20-30m and demonstrations. Inbetween the teaser lessons we will be playing swing music for social dancing, offering food/drink, mingling, and answering questions. You may also register for classes this evening too.

We have classes in:

Tap
House (an urban dance style – NEW)
Solo Jazz

Balboa
Blues

Weekly Lessons Sign-Up
We teach weekly lessons too! If you want to take lessons, this is a good chance to get a vibe of our community here in Edmonton.

Volunteer
We need help for all our dance socials on Fridays and Saturdays, and more! Please contact our organizer (dance@sugarswing.com) if you would like to help at the bar or the door for any of these dances! Also, join our “Sugar Swing Volunteers” Facebook group!

Safety and Inclusiveness
A welcoming, safe, and fun community is what we’re all about! This also requires boundaries and a process for dealing with all levels of harassment. To learn how we empower each other, foster healthy social engagements, please read our code of conduct! http://www.sugarswing.com/code-conduct/

Who is it for?
all-ages

No partner necessary! All ages! Beginner friendly! Many people are in their 20’s and 30’s, though we consistently draw individuals of all demographics and ages!

This is a dry event weekend, so kids are welcome! Adults tend to get the most out of our events. However, if you think your child could get into swing music and dancing, bring ’em along!
