Monthly Classes

Monthly Class Series

At the Woodchopper’s Ball, we teach Beginning- and Intermediate-level monthly group swing dance classes in Lindy Hop, and various other swing dances, such as Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Solo Jazz, and Boogie Woogie.  Classes are held on Tuesdays 7:00-9:00pm (sometimes until 10:00pm), right before our live music dance parties.  Fun, friendly, and featuring some of San Francisco’s most experienced swing dance instructors.  Enrollment includes admission to the dance parties (9:00-11:30pm).  No need to attend or sign up with a partner (we rotate partners frequently in class).  Newcomers and singles welcome!  All ages!

New Series Start the Beginning of Each Month

New monthly class series generally start the first Tuesday of each month and meet on Tuesdays for 4-5 weeks, depending on the number of Tuesdays in that month.  All class series are progressive, meaning each week’s material builds upon the previous weeks’.Sign Up for Classes

Admission to Dance Parties Included!

All students currently enrolled in any of our monthly class series automatically receive admission to the live music Dance Parties for that month, at no extra charge!  Students dropping in on a particular night for a single week’s class of a monthly class series also receive admission to the Dance Party, but for that night only.  As always, admission to the Dance Party includes the 15-minute drop-in Basic Swing dance lesson.

COVID-19 Safety Precautions

To minimize the spread of COVID-19 at the Woodchopper’s Ball, the current policy (as of July 2023) is as follows:

    • Everyone is required to wear a mask while in class (including the drop-in Basic Swing dance lesson).  Otherwise, masking is welcome, but optional.
    • Eating is allowed.
