PHILADELPHIA AREA SUMMER SWING CALENDAR !!

Website Navigation Bar

The Philadelphia Swing Dance Society was created in 1987 by dancers for dancers. It is still volunteer-run and one of the nation's largest, non-profit swing dance organizations that sponsors community swing dances to live music! Their super-friendly social dances are generally the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month with great live bands for most of the dances. All ages and skill levels are welcome. No partners necessary. The dance floor is huge and wood, the environment is alcohol and smoke free. They don't care whether you "Dress Up" in period costume or come casual. Whatever makes you happy !! Just come and dance, dance, dance and tell your friends to come and party with all of us too !!! Check out PSDS' complete website with Dance Dates, Workshop Dates, Directions, Pictures, Links, etc at

BAND ALERT ! BAND ALERT !

Do you KNOW or are you IN

a GOOD SWING DANCE BAND?...

Just being a good band is not enough for swing dancers - they have some special needs because of the nature of dancing. What makes a good "swing dance" band ? Swing Dancers will ASK for your band again and again if you consistently provide the following:

(a) Skillfully played and enthusiastically presented music from ANY era (1930's to present) they will enjoy,

(b) a variety of tempos from slow to fast to show off their stuff (for instance, 25% 100 to 130 beats per minute, 50% 140 to 180 bpm, 25% 190 to 220 bpm), and

(c) songs of 2 to 5 minutes in length so that they can change partners frequently !

IF YOU THINK YOUR BAND MEETS THESE REQUIREMENTS, please do the following. Call Jim Kitch @ 1.610.676.0123 and send him a cassette or CD (studio, live performance or practice sessions) with an assortment of songs by your band which you think meet the above requests a, b, & c. I will listen to it and pass it on to PSDS' Board (of which I am a member) for group review and discussion. Based on our past 12+ years of hiring bands, we will call you if we feel our dancers would enjoy dancing to your music !! And if we can't hire you immediately, PLEASE do not take it personally...
