Live swing bands every Saturday night in Toronto, brought to you by Swing Toronto

Welcome to Swing Toronto!

Saturday Night Swing is suspended pending further notice. This is in compliance with Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam and other relevant public health officials  recommending social distancing (keeping two meters or more distance from other people) and avoiding non-essential gatherings of people, in order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The virus can be spread by breathing near to someone who has the virus, and who may have no symptoms. The recommended social distance to keep is two meters or more. The risk of infection in Toronto is at this time low (March 13, 2020). It was also considered low not long ago in Italy.

We are the friendly producers of terrifically fun dance events in Toronto including Saturday Night Swing on Saturday nights. Or at least we were and hope to be again.
