This fraternal lodge is similar to others in Los Angeles where many Swing dances are held. It’s got a nice wood floor and lots of space to dance.
They have Swing dances most Friday nights, usually with a good live band and a good turnout of dancers. They also offer complimentary popcorn and treats and an “open play” pool table (free pool).
Lately, first Fridays of the month have been country music, so check the Lindy Calendar!

Hi: I’m not a Moose, but a Disabled Navy Veteran (Ship 8310/Burbank) and have my 80th birthday on the horizon. I want to make this a “Swing Theme” night, and have been searching for a Swing Dance Team to perform one set for my event (June 3rd) Do you have any contacts with Swing Teams who might come to do an exhibition? Thinking 4 to 8 dancers (like 4/teams) to do 3-4 dances.
I can make a donation to the Moose or pay something to the dancers. Thiswill be a Dinner in Burbank for 100/Guests. ThankX
Interested. Lindy follower
I help run the swing nights at The Burbank Moose. Please contact me at info@socialdanceLA.net
The Lodge does have an all-ages policy and we do allow younger people to attend the dances. However, we ask that anyone under the age of 17 be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
My 20 year old son is learning to dance but is looking for a venue with people his own age. What are his options?
If he wants to dance with mostly people his own age, check out the Swing dances at UCLA:
Other universities might have Swing dance clubs as well.
Other than that, most all-ages dance venues in Los Angeles have a really diverse, wide range of ages, from folks in their 20s to 60s or older, with the majority being older. Rusty’s and PBDA used to have a group of younger folks attending when I used to go.
The Burbank Moose Lodge has a small but pretty regular crowd of younger dancers, and everyone is quote friendly to newer dancers, which I still am. The only thing I’d keep in mind is that the music by and large tends toward R&B, rockabilly, and rock ‘n roll, and doesn’t feature as much big band swing or modern takes on jazz standards as I would love in an ideal world, but it’s still a really fun place to go.
