7:00-7:30 Learn a Short Solo Routine
7:30-10:00 Dance!
[And you can munch on pizza!]

So I’m going to learn a ‘Short Solo Routine’?
Yep! At 7:00, one of our fantastic Brooklyn Swings Instructors will teach a short dance combination as a warm-up before the dance starts. It will be something you can dance alone, but everybody will be dancing in a group and you won’t have to perform in public. After the lesson, the instructor will be available as Teacher-on-Call to answer any further dancing questions you have throughout the remainder of the night.

And what exactly do you mean by ‘Sliding Scale’?
TLDR: Pay what you can – it’s your choice!
Our goal is to make the weekly dance accessible to everyone. Therefore, we instituted a donation-based admission of $5-10 on DJed nights, and $10-15 on band nights so that everyone can contribute what they can afford. This way, we can keep booking the space, and you can keep coming back. Everybody wins!

Fridays Swing will now have Weekly Community Events
1st Friday Movie Night
2nd Friday Pizza Night
3rd Friday Drink Night
4th Friday Cookie Night
(The Rare) 5th Friday Potluck
Plus, we’ll have a floating Band Night once a month!
