Swing Jam


HCD Swing Jam events will resume after our annual summer break. Join us September 28 for our next scheduled dance, and be sure to check this page before then to learn which DJ will be spinning the tunes we love to dance to, which dance the free lesson will feature, and who we’ll be learning it from.

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.
