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!
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!
Pre-Audition Workshop: Sunday 9/29, 2-3pm
Auditions: Sunday 9/29, 4-6pm & Tuesday 10/1, 8-10pm
Callbacks (by invitation only): Thursday 10/3, 8-10pm
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 2013-14 school year are 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.
