Bree says:

Hi Brian,

Is there an age limit to the beginning swing lesson on October 26th? Thank you.

Brian says:

Hi Bree,

If you’re referring to the beginner lesson at Atomic Ballroom Irvine, I don’t think there is an age limit (within reason). Contact them to be sure though:

Christine says:

Hi SwingDanceLA,

I am fairly new to the community. I have been doing some research on Frank Manning and swing dancing. It is nice see the homage you have given him. Wow, what a great website, so many helpful resources. I love the communal atmosphere you have created and mirrored from the dance community. Thank you! I plan on attending the Lindy Groove Halloween Party. I hope to see you there?!

Pam says:

Hi!
I am so glad this site exists, thank you for all of the great information! I am a beginner/intermediate swing dancer coming to LA in November. Not only am I looking for a place to go dance, I would also like to find a studio that offers private lessons. I live in a rural area with no dancing resources and would like to improve. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Steve Grody says:

Hi Pam,

There are many good teachers in L.A. Do you know where you will be staying? I’m located just north of Chinatown and would be happy to talk with you about what I offer.

Best,
