Free Swing Dancing on Granville

Sunday, July 13, 2014: Van Django (live gypsy jazz music)
Sunday, July 27, 2014: The New Orleans Ale Stars (Louisanna hot jazz)
Sunday, August 10, 2014: Air Mail Special (small group swing music)

On each of these Sundays, the free drop-in beginning swing dance lessons run from 1:00pm to 1:30pm, followed by music and dancing from 1:30pm to 2:30pm. Then lessons pick up again at 2:30 to 3:00pm, following by music and dancing from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.

You don’t need to bring a partner, just show up ready to learn and/or dance. The live music will echo through the street as you move to the rhythm and enjoy this free outdoor experience. Follow the Vancouver Swing Society on Facebook and Twitter for more information.

Looking for more free dancing this summer? There’s also Dance at Dusk in Stanley Park and Free Sunday Salsa at Robson Square put on by other organizations.

    How wonderful. We were talking about planning a vacation to Vancouver. We’ve never been there and hear it’s beautiful AND we’re swing dancers. I even blog about jitterbug, vintage, recipes, decorating as well as work on my fictional swing dance novel! I hope this event continues by the time we can visit!
