Dance Info & Directions

The Nitty-Gritty:


  • Mondays from 9:00-11:00pm (music stops 10 min before end)
    • We close on most holidays, sign up for email reminders
  • Boston Lindy Hop Lessons 7:00-8:00pm & 8:00-9:00pm
    • Note you must register for the class ahead of time

We make sure to notify everyone of the weeks when the church is closed.  Keep yourself in the loop by “liking” our Facebook Page or joining our Mailing List.  Or go wild and do both!  If you’re a Twitter person, you can follow us here.

Monday Night Practice is fairly casual, but you should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable dancing!  Jeans are okay, and so is your best vintage finery.  It’s whatever you please.  With one caveat:  SOFT-SOLED SHOES ONLY.

What was that about my shoes?
The soles of your shoes must be clean and made of either A) rubber that won’t mark the wood floors or B) suede.  If your shoes don’t meet the shoe-criteria, we’ll have to ask you to dance in your socks.  (Nope, not joking!)  For more on the Shoe Policy, check out the FAQs.
