A WHOLE DAY OF WORKSHOPS & A WHOLE NIGHT OF DANCING

We are proud to announce the second Uptown University! We have instructors coming in from across the country to teach some classes for you. Each level gets 3 lessons with 6 great dancers, plus an optional Solo Jazz class.  After a great day of workshops there's an evening dance with a free intro lesson at 8:30pm and live music from the Uptown Swing Combo featuring Naomi Uyama from 9pm-midnight.

You can buy tickets to the dance and workshop separately or if you buy the workshop and dance together you get a discount. Register via this button and we'll see you in September!
