Our History

SwingOutDayton started as a group of friends trying to keep a good thing going when bars stopped holding swing dance nights in 2002.

Since then we have...

  • Organized as a non-profit in Ohio
  • Held numerous workshops featuring national instructors
  • Participated and/or organized local competitions
  • Participated in national competitions
  • Held numerous special events featuring live music by our favorite bands
  • Held a continuous ongoing neverending Wednesday night dance (except on national holidays) since 2002

Our 100% volunteer staff has accumulated over a decade's worth of experience planning, organizing, and running swing dance events. Our goal is to foster a local community of all levels of social dancers, from national competitor to beginner, working together to achieve a greater shared understanding and appreciation of this dance.
