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 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!

For booking or general enquiries, please e-mail us at email.

“Our guests were… delighted by your youthful and exuberant dancing! Drawing everyone onto the dance floor after your show for a group swing dance lesson was also a huge success.”
– Jill Olson

Join us for the experience of a lifetime!

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!

Given the circumstances, we won't be holding auditions this year, but we'll see you next year!

Swingtime members often dance socially, but we are primarily a performance group. For information on Lindy Hop lessons and dance parties, check out Stanford Swing Dancers.
