After September we will be taking a short break from classes for our team to really bring the best Swing experience to both our new mission and our existing students.

    What this means, is keep an eye on our site for upcoming information with classes. We are very excited to move forward, so check back soon with updates!

  • Community Announcement Summer 2014

    As a non-profit organization, our goal at Savoy Swing Club is to fill any niches in our community that need filling, and to provide a structural framework to help this community thrive.  When Savoy Swing Club first started hosting a Monday night dance in the late 90’s, the Seattle swing scene was in its infant stages and needed more dance venues.  A combination of great times and tradition has let that dance continue to this day, but with so many other great venues in Seattle, our dance feels more like a competitor and less like a vital community service. With that in mind…

    The Savoy Swing Club is pleased to announce a new direction:  We are switching our focus towards the next generation of Lindy Hoppers.  We will be working to bring quality dance instruction to youth and underserved populations within the larger community, starting with after-school programs but with an eye towards providing Lindy Hop instruction as part of physical education. Our long-term goal is to have swing instruction in every high school and community college in the area, and we’re excited to get started.

    We will still maintain our Monday night lessons – just not the dance. Our last dance will be held September 15th, and we hope you join us to celebrate our venture into a new chapter for Savoy Swing Club.  You can always count on the Savoy Swing Club’s efforts to bring affordable, quality instruction to our community.  For the foreseeable future we will be maintaining our Monday lessons, with a short practicum after class for our students to hone their recently learned material.  We will also continue to offer our workshops, likely on a quarterly basis.

    Our dances will no longer be competing with the community; rather we will be encouraging its growth by acquiring new talent and directing them towards the plethora of quality instructors and great venues that Seattle has to offer.  We would like you to think of the Savoy Swing Club as the deep roots for our “big tree” of a dance-scene; we tap into the larger community and bring in the next generation of dancers continue to grow the Lindy Hop community.

    We would like to thank the countless volunteers and community members that have worked tirelessly to bring you our Monday night dance over the last few decades.  If Savoy Swing Club can see any farther now with our new direction, it is because we have stood on the shoulders of these giants.

     

    Cheers,

    To the future!
