January 2022: Savoy Mondays become Savoy Fridays!
New year, new day, new location! Our long-running Monday dance is moving to Fridays at the Lowdown Ballroom, a Capitol Hill venue created and run by swing dancers. Come for the lesson at 7:30 PM and stay for the social dance from 8:30 to 10:30 (or later!). Cost: FREE for members, $8-$15 sliding scale for non-members. Check out January's class info below.
Because this is 2022 and the world is still upside down, masks are required at all Savoy Swing Club events, and you must provide physical or digital proof of COVID vaccination to enter.
**Starting February 1st, a booster shot will be required.** Need to schedule an appointment? Try UW Medicine!

Learn some new techniques and rhythms to add to your dance repertoire.
Aaron is keen to share what has been gifted them by the Seattle lindy hop community consistently over many years. Aaron firmly believes that Jazz Music and Jazz vernacular dance are a force for connection, community and emotional enrichment. Aaron strives to provide safety and agency to those who seek to better their relationships with others and themselves through this music and this dance.
Frances started lindy hopping as a first year at her college swing club and never looked back. This dance has taken her on many adventures through numerous cities and places all over the world. Deep down, she just loves connecting to the music and moving through rhythm. She believes that nothing compares to the joy of grooving with another person, and she encourages students to find that joy and partnership in their dancing while honoring the roots of the dance.
Practice Space (Tuesdays 8:30 - 10:30 PM)
The Savoy Practice Space is open at the Lowdown Ballroom every Tuesday evening starting at 8:30 PM. Maybe you want to practice your Shim Sham or get a handle on the swingout. Maybe you want to film your Balboa turns, or just improvise without enraging your downstairs neighbor. Whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, if there's something you want to work on, this is the place.
Questions? Please send a message to Evvie through the club's Facebook page.
Cost: FREE for members, $5 for non-members.
