Swingtime Boston Dances for LGBT, queer, gay, lesbian, bi, non-binary, and trans folks and friends
Fun and friendly monthly LGBTQ dances in Brookline, celebrating over 25 years of awesome dancing!
Come on your own or bring a friend or sweetie; no partner needed, and no dance experience needed! There's a free beginner's dance lesson with Liz Nania, director of OUT to Dance, at 8 pm where you'll get your groove on, and you'll meet all the other newbies there, plus some experienced dancers who love to dance.
Join us for the friendliest and most fun queer dance imaginable. There's a free beginner's dance lesson at 8 pm; it's swing/lindy, and Liz often teaches another dance to spice things up. Then you'll dance the night away til 11 pm. DJ Leandra will be spinning music for dancing cheek to cheek: swing, ballroom, salsa, Latin, country two step, and more. And four times a year we feature Boston's all women swing orchestra, the incredible Mood Swings!
There are also free refreshments and usually some goofy party theme, because that's the kind of folks we are. (No need to come in theme costume, but some folks definitely will, so it's your call. Dress is anywhere from casual to party wear.) Swingtime is the queerest place to experience the fun of dancing ballroom, salsa, swing and more in a super-friendly, no attitude environment, with no worries about whether you want to lead or follow. All genders, all ages (adults), LGBTQ folks and friends, couples or singles, and beginners especially welcome. Come OUT dancing! You know you want to. ;)
