Midtown Stomp is Sacramento’s premier swing dancing and Lindy Hop venue, and one of the largest swing dances on the West Coast. Each Friday night hundreds of people of all ages and walks of life join us for an evening of music and dancing that you have to see to believe.
Friday is the night for swing dancing in Sacramento! Held in the beautiful Confucius Hall. Each week people of all ages and walks of life dance the night away to best Swing, Jazz, and Blues music in Sacramento. You’ll even catch live music twice a month featuring the bands from around the world. Some of the musicians in the bands we bring in have played with such legends as Keely Smith, Etta James, Chick Corea, John Lee Hooker Jr., Charles Brown, and many more. Our DJ nights ($8 cover charge) feature a wide variety of music that includes something for everyone. Song requests are always welcome, just talk to our DJ!
You never need a partner because our dances are extremely social and you’re sure to make great friends at Midtown Stomp. The dance runs from 9:00pm to 12:00am and there is a introductory lesson at 8:00pm which is included in your cover charge. We also offer “Group Swing Dance Classes” for those who want to take their dancing to another level. Come out and join us every Friday night!
Here is more info on what they do from the Midtown Stomp website:
Coming out swing dancing is a great way to meet new people. Swing dancing has always been a social dance. We encourage everyone to ask new people to dance every night, and we rotate partners in the lessons. It’s especially important if you want to meet new people to come to the lesson. People you meet in the lesson, you’ve already danced with and you can easily ask them to dance later in the night!
We are primarily an East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop venue. We teach lessons in those two dances. You may also see Balboa, Charleston, Collegiate Shag or many other vintage dances from the 20’s thru the 50’s. A few times a month we open a second room for dancing and host a full fledge West Coast Swing dance!
Come to a few of our lessons, and if you have questions, ask any of the instructors, we’d love to help! If you are interested in learning more, please talk to us about private lessons, additional classes that we run, and other things that we can do to make you more comfortable and help you learn to dance at whatever level you wish!
