What we're about

We are a growing group of people dedicated to promoting swing dancing and Lindy Hop Swing in Eugene, Oregon.

In the summer of 2012 there were NO Lindy hop swing dances being held in town. We began having informal practices at local dance studio. It started with 2 people just dancing for a couple hours a week. Because it was such a small event, we started calling the practices “SWING CLUB!” (What’s the first rule of Swing Club?) Eventually 5 people came, then 7 then 12, and eventually… we started catching the attention of out of town visitors! That fall, our founding volunteers put on an official dance.

It attracted over 80 people from Eugene, Corvallis, and even Portland! We continue with monthly swing dances throughout the school year. We’re celebrating our fourth year, and continue having lots of fun spreading the joy of Lindy Hop and other Swing Dancing in Eugene.

Please join us for a dance! Check out our website at www.tracktownswing.com or connect with us on Facebook at facebook.com/tracktownswing or our Springfield brethren at www.springfieldswing.com or facebook.com/springfieldswing
