Vintage Dance Company
Imagine…you’re all dressed up to enjoy an evening of fun with your partner. You walk into the dance club and immediately, your ears are flooded with the preserved sounds of big bands and swing troupes from long ago. You see the smiling faces of the welcoming community around you, enjoying conversation. You take to the dance floor and break out into some swing, or step into a fox trot. It’s almost as if you’ve stepped back 100 years into the past. This is the experience Vintage Dance Company exists to provide, so come join us at our next dance party!
We are a company that loves the vintage styles of dancing and early jazz and we want to share the music and the dances and make them accessible to everyone.
Our purpose is to provide an authentic jazz and swing experience and to see people not only enjoy these great dances from the past, but through the dance and musical experience, be emotionally and physically freed and feel celebrated for who they are whether they are taking lessons, dancing with their partner, watching a performance, or dancing on the social floor.
We specialize in performing and teaching many of the dance styles that developed in the early 20th Century with jazz music. These dances include Charleston, Lindy Hop, Vernacular Jazz, Shag, Blues, and Balboa, though some of our dancers know other styles as well. We perform, host dance events, teach lessons, and sometimes participate in community events that offer opportunities for dancing.
Many dance studios may know a form of these old dances or the basics, but we like to make our experiences feel authentic by bringing in the spirit and the history of the dance and keeping it in mind with everything we do.
Currently, Vintage Dance Company offers social dances with a free beginner lesson, regular dance classes, dance workshops, individual and group private lessons, and performers, teachers, and DJs for private and public events.
