Swing Dancing in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and all around Southern California!! Join us for lessons, dances, workshops, and more!

W elcome to our Video Gallery! We'll be putting more swing dancing, lindy hop, and other dance videos and movie clips up here! NOTE: Each clip has two versions to accomodate different internet connection speeds: LO Quality (100 kbps to 128 kbps) and HI Quality (300 kbps to 400 kbps). The file size for each clip is given below the image for that clip. All clips are in wmv format (Windows Media Video). Enjoy!

NEW: Since many users now prefer MP4 since it can be played on all computers and is used with iTunes, iPhone, iPod, etc.. I have uploaded new clips with "Super Hi" resolution in mp4 format. These clips are going to be 20 to 40 mb in size so I highly recommend downloading first and then enjoying local playback on your computer or device. Thanks!!

NOTE FOR MAC USERS: Download VLC video player. It's free and it plays just about every type of video file you can think of (flv, avi, wmv). Also, you can download Windows Media Player for the Mac to watch .wmv files!

This is our "All The Cats Join In/Traffic Jam" routine from the National Jitterbug Championships. We won first with this routine. This is the showy routine and of course we had a lot of fun with it! This routine has two main inspirations: the first is of course the cartoon "All The Cats Join In" from Disney's "Make Mine Music". The second was the team themselves. On the way home from practice they were held up at the train tracks by a "never-ending train" and decided to get out of the car and start dancing.

"Love Me Or Leave Me" the song has different moods from relaxed to classical to intricate to jubilant and our hope is to showcase the same emotions in our dancing as the routine goes on. Inspired by Minnie's Moochers. They are the originals who are to this day still an inspiration.

We Teach!


As you can probably tell from our site we definitely enjoy spreading our passion for swing dancing. We very much enjoy making our classes entertaining, fun, and of course educational.

Online Video Lessons: via iDance.net.

Ongoing Weekly Group Lessons: We teach Lindy Hop Levels I and II and Balboa I/IA (Ben and Tise) in Pasadena.

Private Lessons: We teach private lessons generally one night a week and occasionally on the weekend (if schedule allows).

Swing Dance Workshops: We will occasionally teach and/or promote swing dance workshops.

Book Us: Yes, we love to travel! Contact us to book us for teaching a workshop in your area!
