Learn to Swing Dance!Sign Up for Classes

Fun, friendly classes featuring some of San Francisco’s most experienced swing dance instructors.  New monthly classes start Tuesday, June 4, 2019!  Enrollment includes admission to the live music dance parties!  No need to bring a partner–we rotate partners in class.  Real live music.  Real people.  Real fun!


The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district.

On May 28, 2019, the Woodchopper’s Ball is CLOSED for renovations.  We return June 4 with new monthly classes, at our regular venue, the Verdi Club.

Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), the Woodchopper’s Ball features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!
