“It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!” At Swing It Seattle, owners Mark and Katie Kihara teach fun and accessible lessons on the original swing dance, the Lindy Hop. The Kiharas believe that understanding the context and culture in which swing dance developed is just as important as learning the moves. Their lessons are designed to connect their students with the Black experience and dance culture from which the Lindy Hop emerged. 

Pro tip: If you’re eager to try out the moves you learned in class, stop by for Swing It Wednesdays, a weekly social dance featuring live music from local jazz musicians.
