The DePaul Swing Society teaches the 20s and 40s era swing styles, as well as a healthy dose of Blues dancing too. From Lindy Hop to Charleston, they teach the basics and introduce members to the social dance scene in Chicago. The Swing Society meets on Thursday nights at The Ray, teaching a lesson from 8:30-9:30 pm followed by open dancing until 11:15 pm.
The purpose of the Swing Society is to introduce and promote swing dancing to students as well as the entire Chicago community. As the official swing club of DePaul University we will provide lessons for beginners for both the university and the non-university community. Our goal is to introduce the basics so students become comfortable enough to dance out on the floor. We will also provide opportunities for advanced swing dancers through worships, activities, events, and dances in the forms of East Coast, Charleston, Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues and other forms of swing. Our mission is to educate people in and around Chicago about the swing culture.
