Teaching over 4,000 students annually at 10 locations, Gottaswing is America's largest exclusively swing dance instruction and dance event promotion company. Lessons are very reasonably priced and require no long term contract. You don't need to bring a partner (we rotate partners in class), experience is not required, and we welcome dancers of all ages at all our events and classes. What makes us special is our attention to creating a community of swing dancers through lessons and weekly swing dances. Gottaswing features four nights of live music and three DJ dance nights every week to accommodate every schedule.

Whether you’re looking to stay physically active, meet new people, or just want to survive that next wedding with your dignity intact, look no further. We’re certain that once you get started you’ll be hooked on the best music and dancing around, because it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t GOTTASWING!
