About Us

At Gottaswing Charlotte, we pride ourselves on fostering a fun environment where everyone is welcome. Whether you’re an experienced dancer or have never been on the hardwood before, we have something for you. We are a licensee of the largest swing-only dance instruction and promotion company in America, Gottaswing.com, with over 4,000 students annually. No previous dance experience is required, and we actively welcome all ages at all of our events.

 

 

Swing dancing is a fun, social activity where you meet great people and stay in shape, all at the same time!  (Plus, it’s way more fun than running on a treadmill at a gym.) And no dedicated partner is required! In keeping with the roots of this being a social dance, everyone can dance with everyone.

 

 

We offer group and private instruction in the swing dances of the 1930s and 1940s, including Lindy Hop, Charleston, East Coast Swing, and Balboa.  We also host at least two social dances every month.

These dances focus on the fun of swing dancing, without a bunch of pretense or pressure.

ABOUT US

Classes

Jim and Mich will be teaching two different class series on Tuesday nights in June, either of which you can sign up for right now!

 

At 7pm is their "Introduction to Swing" series. They will be introducing the foundations that you see those awesome dancers doing on the dance floor. We all gotta start somewhere, right? This class will focus on exploring fundamental patterns in swing dancing in order to build confidence and broaden your repertoire. Sign up for it HERE.

 

At 8pm they will be teaching a "Beyond the Basics" series. This class is for newer dancers who are ready to take the next step into intermediate Lindy Hop! We will be diving deeper into the fundamentals of the dance. The main focus will be on building strong lead/follow technique and connection. Sign up for it HERE.
