Our goal is simple: 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 is our outreach program bringing lindy-hop instruction into public high-schools as an after-school program. Rhythm Seattle gives teenagers something fun and safe to do after school, while teaching them valuable life skills centered on respecting one another and creatively expressing themselves.
Rhythm Seattle spent a semester at Ingraham High School in 2016, where the program was well received. This year, we are very excited to announce that Rhythm Seattle will be returning for Fall Semester 2017 at Denny International Middle School in West Seattle! Teachers Veronica Lopez and Joshua Mclean, both experienced in teaching dance and working with youth, are excited to bring their love of all things jazz and swing to youth who otherwise might never do a triple step!
