Heartland Swing Festival March 1-2


Each month we will start a new series.

Don't forget the FREE basic swing lesson at Madhatballroom every Thursday night at 7:45 right before Thursday Night Swing Social!

The dances we teach are all "classic vintage swing" dances just the way they were done in the 1920's, 30's and 40's.  Each class will be based on the level of the students enrolled.  We will not only teach footwork, but attitude, styling and techniques that were very commonly seen on the dance floor.  When this important part of our history is brought back to life, the whole room starts jumping.
