picture of dancersThe Sandra Cameron Dance Center's Swing program teaches all styles of social jazz dancing, from the Peabody of the early Teens to the Lindy Hop of the Thirties and Forties.

The Swing program began in 1981, when Larry Schulz brought Al Minns, one of the best dancers of Harlem's famed Savoy Ballroom, out of dance retirement to teach Lindy Hop (also known as Swing or Jitterbug) to an eager group of enthusiasts. Since its inception, the Swing program has maintained strong ties to Harlem, the center of jazz creativity. Three members of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers, the world famous dance troupe of the '30's and '40's, have taught at the studio, including Frankie Manning, who taught group classes at our studio from 1985 to 2010.

More than 30 years later, Sandra Cameron Dance Center keeps swingin' with the most experienced teaching staff in the city.
