Join the Arizona Lindy Hop Society for some exciting Swing and Lindy Hop courses that will have you on the dance floor feeling more confident and having fun. Lindy Hop is the original dance that was done to swing music in the late 1920′s and remained popular through the 1950′s, until a resurgence in the 1990′s that spread around the world and continues. Steve Conrad has been teaching lindy hop for over 19 years and has taught thousands of people how to dance. We will be exploring creativity, musicality, improvisation, and new, socially lead-able and follow-able moves.

WHAT THE DUCE? Brought to you by the same team that presents Al Moro Swing and Blues each week, South Central Swing IS THE PLACE for which you've been yearning. Think old school Chicago, prohibition-era, speakeasy. The Duce embodies the Urban feeling of the classic jazz joints and city spaces from a bygone era. It is 18,000 Square feet of pure amazing-ness. At the Duce you'll find a pie bar, a soda fountain, vintage boxing ring (in which you'll find the band), the original bar from the 1930's Chicago jazz club, the Black Orchid, and pretty sweet little kitchen with awesome chow. Feeling gritty, yet welcoming, you will soon think of it as your second home. A place where you can share a drink, connect with friends, and dance the night away. 7:30p - 8:30p - Beginning East Coast Swing Lesson with Jonathan & Rachel 8:30p - Midnight - Bad Cactus Brass Band and the Best DJ'd Swing music Cost: $10 per person (Drink and Dinner Specials all night) No partner required If you attend regularly and wish to host this event please let Michelle know. It is always nice when we have a host who attends the functions. This event is being kept open to keep all options open to all dancers. Jonathan Lindsay is not a Meet Up member, just really gracious, friendly, and welcoming, as are all the dancers who go to the Duce. You will be guaranteed a great time here, as with all these other dance events. Please feel free to attend, you may become a regular!
