Thank you to everyone who came to our first Java Jive of the year last night! We had a great turnout and Ida was truly in full swing.

Please see the classes page

September 17, 2016 | WE ARE BACK!!!
We are happy to announce that we are back in the SWING of things! Check out our calendar
to see what is up and coming!
To all first-years: welcome to UChicago! If you are in the mood
to join a fun RSO, CSDS may be the place for you (especially if you like jazz music and dancing). It doesn't matter whether you have dance experience or not - many of our members weren't dancers before they discovered swing.
If you're interested in finding out more about what swing is, join us at our first Java Jive of the year on October 1st for a free lesson and dance
To all our regular dancers, within and beyond the UChicago community, we look forward to seeing you again in October!

Since the Chicago Swing Dance Society is a student-run organization and the students are currently on summer holiday, there are no immediate special events or weekly dances planned. However, we will be back in October with Java Jives, more events, and classes.
In the meantime, please check out our Dancing in Chicago page
to find places to swing dance downtown!
