March 2019 Events

March is a big month for Detroit’s swing dance community, because of the BIG III — no, not the car companies, but the Big Band, Big Floor, Big Crowd swing dance held at the Masonic Temple in Detroit each year. Click here for more information on this event.

This month, Swing Detroit is hosting our regular weekly Wednesday dances, and the last Wednesday (3/27) is a live-music night! We’re also hosting our first-ever Teachers Workshop on March 31st. Hope to see you all this month!
