Saturday Swing Dance

Time to swing again at the Avalon!  Come at 7:00 to learn how to dance, or just come at 8:00 to listen and watch.  This is by far one of our favorite venues!

  • Roger Campbell – Clarinet
  • Mike McCullough – Guitar/Vocals
  • Rick Weingarten – Vibraphone/Vocals
  • Andy Weyl – Piano
  • Dwight Thompson – Bass
  • Jim Moore – Drums


The Avalon Ballroom is Colorado’s premier social dance venue, with a large cushioned oak dance floor, excellent audio, and smooth acoustics.

They are known for their welcoming attitude and community spirit.
Gender-balance tends to be quite good.

Dancing to live music 8:00 to 11:00 PM. Dance music during intermissions by a DJ.

Swing dance class 7:00 PM included. Suitable for all dancers.

Admission: $20 per person general; $10 students with I.D.; volunteers free.
Children $10 only with responsible adult in charge.
Cash or check at the door.
No reservations required.

Light snacks provided. There is a coat room.

All ages welcome. No partner or dance experience required.

Please wear non-marking shoes. Dress to express yourself! Casual is fine; dressing up is also great.

For weather and other scheduling alerts see the Event Calendar; we rarely cancel a swing dance due to weather.

Our dances focus mostly on what is generally called six-count swing, not heavily oriented towards lindy-swing.
Our bands generally also play a few dance numbers each evening in other couples-dance styles; cha-cha-cha, waltz, ballads, rumba, and etcetera.

Volunteers welcome.

This swing series is sponsored by Snowhawk Productions, a member group of the Boulder Dance Coalition.
