About the event
THE PARTICULARS In sheer numbers of dancers, the monthly HCD West Hartford Swing dance, usually held on the first Friday evening of every month, is our most popular event. It’s not unusual to have more than 200 dancers come out for this dance. And for good reasons: we bring in the best bands from New York City, Boston, and all around New England; the air conditioned West Hartford Town Hall auditorium’s wooden dance floor is truly made for swing; and there are always lots of eager dancers waiting to dance with you. The dances are from 8:00–11:00, but if you’re newish to swing dancing, from 7:00–8:00 there’s a free beginner’s workshop taught by a professional dance instructor—also a perfect opportunity to meet lots of other dancers. Swing basics are covered in the first 20 minutes of the lesson, so we ask that you be on time. Those not taking the lesson will be asked to wait upstairs until the lesson is over. See a video of one of our dances here.
ADMISSION General admission to the dance is $15, $5 for students under 25 with a school ID, and free for children 12 and under. To get in free, volunteer your time for 45 minutes.
