Swing Dances

All of our events ended in March 2020 due to the pandemic. The venue for Saturday Night Swing before the pandemic has not survived as a dance venue, and is one of the many casualties of the pandemic.

In-person Lindy Hop courses started Tuesday September 28 and Wednesday September 29, 2021 with excellent teachers! See the workshops and the courses pages for details on the latest lessons. The next set of courses starts the first Tuesday and Wednesday in November. There will be more in December!

Stay tuned for more announcements re upcoming events.

See the Swing Dance Toronto Facebook group for events with swing bands we can dance to outdoors this August and September (2021).

There was, before the pandemic, a terrific swing dance every Saturday night at the Dovercourt House featuring a great line-up of live swing bands! The events included beginner swing dance classes before the party each week.

Saturday Night Swing
Before the Pandemic

Looking for something to do in Toronto on a Saturday night? Swing dancing at Saturday Night Swing is just the thing for you!


Saturday Night Swing is the main swing dance event in Toronto featuring an outstanding line up of live swing bands, DJs, teachers and classes every Saturday night! The evening begins with dance classes open to everyone including absolute beginners, 7pm to 9pm. A Swing Dance Party follows from 9:10pm to 1am. Everyone is welcome. See the Swing Schedule for schedule details.

Saturday nights also feature The Dance Ambassadors, a team of volunteers who are specifically there to welcome newcomers to the party. They’re there to invite you to dance, especially in the early part of the evening before the first band break. They also attend the 8pm dance lesson so that you’ll have a chance to meet them during the lesson rotation. The Dance Ambassadors are a Toronto Lindy Hop program run by volunteers. They are named in honour of the late great Frankie Manning who was known as the Ambassador or Lindy Hop.
