Swing Jam


Saturday, June 22, will be our final dance before the summer break, and to celebrate the end of a most successful season we’ll be dancing to music chosen especially for us by DJ Kelly Wybieracki. When she’s not DJ-ing, Kelly is a ballroom- and line-dance, fitness, and yoga instructor, and for this event she’ll be teaching a free foxtrot lesson. Meet up with Kelly on Facebook here.

Not enough swing for you? Check out HCD’s other swing-dance events, HCD West Hartford Swing, held in West Hartford (of course) usually on the first Friday evening of every month. More information here.

On the fourth Saturday evening of every month (except July and August) lovers of swing gather from 8:00–10:30 at Temple Beth Torah in Wethersfield for the HCD Swing Jam. Though swing is not the only draw (our professional DJs also throw in the occasional waltz, Latin, foxtrot, hustle, and night club two-step), it is the main event. Also, there’s a free lesson featuring swing and other dances from 7:15–8:00. See a video of one of our dances here.

General admission to the dance is $10.00, $8.00 for students (with school ID, please), and free for volunteers. If you’d like to be included on our roster of prospective volunteers, complete the form at the bottom of this page, including your name, email address, and “I’D LIKE TO BE A PROSPECTIVE VOLUNTEER” in the Subject field.
