We commonly have multi-generational participation from seniors down to middle school participants. We are an alcohol-free environment and make every effort to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience in a safe and low stress setting. We pride ourselves as inclusive and make every effort to see that everyone feels welcome and has a great time.
There is a beginner's lesson that precedes each dance. Our focus is on the social dancing model where you learn to interact with a variety of partners at varying skills in a safe family-friendly environment.
Armory Park Swing Dance is held on the 4th Saturday of each month. A one hour beginner- friendly lesson precedes three hours of open dancing. No partner is required. Live music is provided by top-tier bands focusing on swing, big band, jump blues and rockabilly themed music. We are the only regularly-scheduled swing event with live music in Tucson. We recommend arriving early since parking spills over from downtown events.
