Swingtime is Stanford's premiere performance-based swing dance troupe.

Our specialty is Savoy-style Lindy Hop, a style of swing born in late-'20s Harlem. We work with professional choreographers, dance historians, and dance legends to recreate swing-era dances and integrate current trends.

Swingtime's repertoire ranges from smooth swing with sleek moves to fast-paced Lindy Hop with jaw-dropping aerials. We are continually pressing the limits of how smooth, fast, and high we can go!

We are extremely excited to announce that Swingtime will be traveling to Thailand this summer to perform for the Princess's 60th birthday! Keep your eyes out for fundraisers that we will be hosting and we greatly appreciate all donations to our Go Fund Me. Thank you so much!


Join us for the experience of a lifetime this October!

Think you have what it takes? Even if you're not sure, come and try out anyway! When we say no experience necessary, we mean it. Swingtime members are chosen for attitude as much as aptitude – many of our current members had never danced before. As a bonus, you'll learn part of an actual Swingtime choreo!

Sunday 9/28: Workshop 1-2pm, Auditions 3-5pm at Burnham Pavilion

Monday 9/29: Auditions 8:30-10:30pm at the Graduate Community Center

You may choose either the Sunday or Monday auditions; the process will be exactly the same on both days.

Tryouts begin during the second week of each year. There are two dates to choose from, and we'll teach a brief Lindy Hop workshop beforehand so first-timers can get a feel for the moves. After that, we'll invite a select few to callbacks for a chance to join us!

Auditions for the 2014-2015 school year are now over. If you came, thanks for joining us, and we hope to see you again next year!


We bring the party.

Want to jazz up your company party or dance showcase? We love doing gigs of all kinds. Options including choreographies, swing dancing lessons, or both.

Our pieces range from cute and cheery to smooth and jazzy, so if you're looking to set a particular mood, we're happy to help.
