Rhythm Seattle was Savoy Swing Club's community outreach program from 2016-2017.
With Rhythm Seattle, we brought Lindy Hop instruction into public schools as an after-school program. Rhythm Seattle gave teenagers something fun and safe to do after school, while teaching them valuable life skills centered on respecting one another and creatively expressing themselves. Our goal was to teach the generation of tomorrow how to respect each other, communicate thoughtfully, and have the courage to stand up for what they believe in by learning how to social dance.
Rhythm Seattle spent a semester at Ingraham High School in 2016 and Denny International Middle School in 2017! Teachers Veronica Lopez and Joshua Mclean, both experienced in teaching dance and working with youth, brought their love of all things jazz and swing dancing to Seattle youth.
