Learn to Dance
There is absolutely no experience (not even a partner!) needed when you join us for lessons here at the DSDS.
All that we ask is that you come with a smile, an open mind, and wearing clean indoor shoes with non-marking soles.
~At DalKing's Swing Safe Dance~
We care about your safety and comfort. If anyone, regardless who, is making you uncomfortable, please come tell a staff member , executive or volunteer.
As these are private lessons, we reserve the right to ask anyone to leave if they are disrupting the event, the enjoyment of our attendees or any other reason that we deem reasonable.
Lindy Hop lessons are progressive so drop-ins are not advisable.
Summer Lessons 2018
We've got some lessons lined up for you during the summer, you wouldn't want to miss them. As always, you don't need to bring a partner or have any experience in dance, so come on!
Not sure if you want to make the leap? Check out our weekly swing factory for a drop in lesson!
Want to be a DJ?
If you really like swing dance music, we invite you to learn about DJing! Other than volunteers, the DSDS is looking for a Head DJ (preferably someone with DJ experience) and DJs to help out with events. Ready to be a DJ? Apply here!
Our Head DJ Ian Whitman offers lessons to prospective DJs.
A message from Ian:
"This is a basic, high level, DJ intro web series being done by a site that I use for DJ information pretty regularly. It's covering the basic concepts of DJing (from a club DJ standpoint, however the basics apply to all DJing). Have a look if you're interested. FYI this is meant as a lead-in to a paid course, and the courses aren't cheap. For basic info video the series is useful, and there is a free weekly training course you can sign up for through the site as well."
