Do I need to know how to swing dance?
No. This is a social environment that allows those to dance, drink, eat and socialize while listening to their favorite dance tunes from the 50s and 60s. There are tables to sit and eat near the dance floor. It is not a requirement to dance. If you would like to learn how to swing dance, many of our guests can teach you a few steps.
Do I need to bring a dance partner?
No. You may come alone or come with friends. Many of our guests will change dance partners many times throughout the night so everyone has a chance to dance with everyone else. We are considered the friendliest dance event in NYC so it’s easy to socialize and join the fun.
Is there a dress code?
No. Feel free to come in casual clothing that is comfortable to dance in. Some wear suits and dresses as well. If you enjoy dressing up in vintage or retro attire, come ready for pictures!
What is the age range?
All ages attend our dances! From 20’s to even 80’s! Our main crowd tends to be Baby Boomers but all are welcome.
