Swing Dance Astoria (SDA) was established in 2014 with the mission of sharing the joy of Lindy Hop a.k.a. Swing Dancing with a diverse group of people, and bringing people together through the dance despite the differences in their backgrounds. Swing Dance Astoria aims at creating a Lindy Hop/Swing Dance community in Astoria, LIC and other parts of Queens and providing a friendly and safe space for anyone to enjoy this beautiful partner dance called Lindy Hop.
To accomplish this mission, SDA also aims at outreaching the underserved population who might have a limited access to artistic and cultural activities such as dance and music. Please see the Outreach page for more information.
Lastly, SDA aims at joining the world wide efforts of preserving the true spirit of Lindy Hop and its music which sit at the root of many American art forms. The history of Lindy Hop shouldn’t be forgotten.
SDA currently offers three levels of weekly classes as well as monthly dance parties where students practice dancing with each other and get to know one another. In addition to weekly dance classes, SDA successfully hosted 4 swing dance parties with live jazz music in collaboration with Mundo New York in the summer of 2016 where people enjoyed beginner classes, cultural talks, and dancing and socializing to live traditional jazz music.
