Our mission is to expand and enrich the community for swing & jazz music and their authentic dances, through education & performance.
We work to preserve & promote the Spirit of Swing which champions individual expression and celebrates diversity, while also fostering community and connection.
We believe in the power of Swing to help us face adversity, be part of a community, love ourselves and find happiness.
With our academy we aim to offer world class education in dance and music. We cultivate in our students a foundation of four pillars: historical appreciation, compassionate connection, courageous movement and musical intelligence. We believe this is the pathway to creativity, self-expression, joy and finding yourself in music & dance.
With our dance company we aim to support the professional development of swing, tap & jazz roots dancers and choreographers, and advocate for these dance styles in the national dance industry. We aim to build networks and foster collaboration between musicians and dancers.
We are swing dancers. We are jazz singers. We are hoofers and flappers. Jazz ignites our imagination and invites us to play.
