FAQ

  • Q: How much does it cost?
    • A: Most of our dances cost $5. This may differ if there is a special event. The price of the beginner lesson is included in admission.
  • Q: How do I get to the dances?
    • A: The YMCA has plenty of parking so many use their car or take the Blacksburg Transit bus system from VT.
  • Q: What should I wear?
    • A: Cool, comfortable clothes that you can move in and comfortable shoes that won't scuff hardwood floors. Sometimes we have a theme, so check our upcoming events page to see what attire to wear to those.
  • Q: Who can attend?
    • A: Anyone! We are a social scene who welcomes anyone who wants to dance! Also, all our events are smoke, drug, and alcohol free, so we are family friendly.
  • Q: Do I need a partner?
    • No. Swing is a social dance, so instead of having a set partner, we rotate though partners during the lessons and after each song. 
  • Q. What should I bring?
    • We suggest you bring a water bottle, a clean shirt in case you sweat a lot, and any other personal hygiene items to feel are necessary (i.e. deodorant, breath mints, hand sanitizer, etc.)
  • Q: What if the weather is bad?
    • A: If there is inclement weather the dance may be cancelled. Cancellations will be decided at 2:00pm the day of a dance. A special email notification will be sent to the listserv and the calendar will be updated to reflect the cancellation.
  • Q: What kinds of messages will I receive if I sign up for the listserv? 
    • A: We try not to overwhelm you with emails via the listserv
    • Once weekly email about local dance opportunities in the region.
    • Special announcement emails about location changes, cancellations, and our special events.
