Blues and Swing is Ft Collins premiere social dance! Old Town Yoga is an amazing venue that boasts beautiful wood floors, plenty of space to dance and two separate rooms of music. We strive to create an inclusive, safer space that welcomes people of any age, gender, race, and sexual orientation. We are a community that  supports each other and holds each other accountable. We expect respect and give each other respect. We want you to come and dance with us!

Blues and Swing offers an hour long dance lesson every Saturday night from 8 to 9. We always offer an intro lesson in either swing or blues. Check out the calendar below for more info on upcoming lessons and to see when your favorite DJs are playing. We are working to bring more intermediate and advanced level classes to help you progress and grow as a dancer. We also offer occasional workshops with national level instructors when they come through town.

Dancing Inside the Box

As blues/swing/fusion dancers, we get the opportunity to dance with partners coming from a wide variety of dance backgrounds. Sometimes this makes connecting in a partnership more difficult. In this class, we will learn to be flexible and creative dancers by putting fun and wacky limitations on our dancing.
