Evergreen Jazz Festival (July 28-30)

Held in Evergreen, Colorado, this is a small jazz festival with a good dance floor and some great bands. If you're looking for room to dance on an uncrowded floor, this is your best bet. Bands include Joe Smith and the Spicy Pickles, Queen City Jazz Band, Gypsy Swing Revue and Cali-Co Ragtime Quartet...All great dance bands. For more info, go to .

Rocky Mountain Balboa Blowout (October 21-23)

The Rocky Mountain Balboa Blowout will be held at the Castle Events Center at the Doubletree in Northglenn. We attended this workshop last year and learned a lot. Balboa is a 1930's dance that started in Southern California and was the result of crowded dance floors. It's a fast dance with partners close. Participants came from all over the country. Instructors came from all over the world (UK, Australia, Canada, New York, LA)! They offer every level from Beginner to Advanced. Classes are offered all day with a dance each evening to a live band. Even if you don't dance much, you'll want to watch these incredible dancers and enjoy the live music. Check it out at .

1940's White Christmas Ball (December 2)

Don't miss the 1940's White Christmas Ball on December 2. It includes Big Bands & Dancing, Sleigh Rides, Re-enactments, Vintage Vegas Tribute with Frank Sinatra and Friends and much more. Check it out at and buy your tickets early because it always sells out.

We teach swing dance lessons privately in our home.  We specialize in East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Lindy Charleston and Balboa.  Because we want to develop a swing dance community in Summit County, we offer lessons at an incredibly low price—only $25 per hour for a couple. We teach at your pace, not ours. Got 2 left feet? We’ve had some success with people who said they had never danced.  If you can walk and tap your feet to the music, you can swing dance.  Contact us by email at
