  1. There is no swing dancing at the Culver Hotel tonight, Thanksgiving. We turned up at 6:15pm and was told there’s some kind of quiet jazz music at 8pm. Not sure if that’s danceable.

    1. Ok we found a speakeasy Seventy7 lounge across the street from Culver Hotel down the alley and the owner is playing cool swing music for us dance to. Happy thanksgiving!

      1. Thanks for letting me know, and glad you found an alternative! It was supposed to be outside adjacent to the hotel. Did you look there?

  2. LA Swing Dance Posse will be performing at the Swingin’ Birthday Bash at PBDA. Norma Miller, Chaz Young, and Chester Whitmore will be in attendance.

    Come out and join us for this special 2-day event, as we will be performing on both nights (Nov 30, Dec 1).

    You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet Norma Miller, Chaz Young, and Chester Whitmore!

    There will also be 2 days of Jazz and Swing workshops and dances.

  3. New 4 week BEGINNER classes offered by the LA Swing Dance Posse.

    Every Monday, from Nov 26 – Dec 17, 7:30pm – 8:30 pm in Torrance, CA

    What will Lindy Hop Swing Beginner Class cover?
    For some, partner dancing is a totally new experience so in the beginner class, we will focus on Fundamentals of Lead and Follow, Basic Swing Hold and Basic Swing Rhythm to get you dancing by the end of the first class!

    As we progress, we’ll touch on dance posture and frame towards achieving great partner work. We’ll also work in basic 6 and 8 count figures. By the end of the 4th week, you’ll be able to do the Swing-Out and will be swing dancing on the dance floor!

  4. New 4 week INTERMEDIATE classes offered by the LA Swing Dance Posse.

    Every Monday, from Nov 26 – Dec 17, 8:30pm – 9:30 pm in Torrance, CA

    Lindy Hop Swing Intermediate class is meant for those who have gone through the Lindy Hop Swing Beginners class or those who have just started learning Lindy Hop Swing and have been dancing for a couple of months. Participants should already know the Basic 6 Count and 6 Count variations and also Basic 8 count Lindy Swingout and Lindy Circle. We will continue to focus on enhancing our Lead and Follow techniques and work on proper hold and posture. We will introduce several basic Swing Out variations and Tandem Charleston. Get ready to have lots of fun!

  5. Our gender-free swing dance sock hop is back in Hollywood on Sunday, the 2nd of December!
