What we're about

Milwaukee has an active swing dance scene. This meetup group covers the swing open dance events and swing lesson events in the Milwaukee area. We cover events for East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, some Lindy Hop, etc.

New to swing dancing, or curious? We cover beginner swing lesson events, and check out some of the links for photos and videos of the swing dance events.

The Milwaukee swing dance scene is a very warm friendly social environment where meeting and welcoming new people is already the norm. In the lesson events, partners are rotated, so you meet everyone one on one before the lesson is over.

As such, many of the meetups for this group are to let the group know about dance events, and the host may or may not stake out a particular spot for the meetup attendees, as it is already a warm social scene.

For those new to the Milwaukee dance scene, here are a few links to some of the active Milwaukee swing dance organizations:

Any member may host a swing-related event not already posted. We can't hope to keep track of them all, so please host events as they come up.
