Swing Dances at Glen Echo Park

On selected Saturday nights, we present swing dances at Glen Echo Park. These dances are held in the fabulous Spanish Ballroom unless otherwise noted. These dances feature the best swing bands from not only the Washington DC area, but also around the US and beyond. No partner is required, dress is casual, and we welcome beginner and advanced dancers alike.

Each evening starts with a Beginning Swing Lesson from 8:00 - 9:00 pm, followed by dancing from 9:00 pm - 12:00 midnight.
