Ann Arbor Community for Traditional Music and Dance


Ann Arbor Swing Dance Association

The Ann Arbor Swing Dance Association (AASDA) promotes and sponsors the traditional swing dances with roots in the decades of the 1920s–1940s such as charleston, lindy hop, collegiate shag, east coast swing, balboa, and blues. We love these dances and want to share our passion with you! Our goal is to bring lessons and workshops to the Ann Arbor swing dance community, and to promote the swing dancing venues in the area.

See you on the dance floor!

Note: Help protect our dance floors - please bring a clean pair of shoes to change into for dancing.

Friday Night Swing has a Safer Spaces Policy. Please read it HERE.
