Come dance with us
When in doubt, swing out!
Swing-Out Edmonton Dance Club is a non-profit University of Alberta Student Group for swing dancing. We are dedicated to spreading the love of swing dancing across campus while building a vibrant swing dance community. We strive to create a fun, friendly, and open atmosphere that reinforces our vision that anyone can, and should, swing dance.
Swing-Out Edmonton now has a Covid policy
Due to the omicron variant, plans to move back in person have been put on hold. In the interest of safety, and in accordance with mandatory university policy, all of our events will currently be held online.
Our first winter event, Sweets and Swing is free and is scheduled for Jan 27th. It will feature an online introduction to solo jazz.
For the moment we will be pausing our Beginner lessons. Instead all those wishing to participate are encouraged to join our open level group Minnie Dippers. The lessons will feature a variety of solo jazz standards. All levels of dance experience are welcome!
If and when we can return to in person partner dancing this semseter, we will be updating our newsletter (subscribe below) and facebook, so make sure you stay connected!

Due to current University and Government rules, we cannot enforce mask wearing, sanitizing, health checks or vaccination checks. However we want to remind our participants that partner dancing has an inherently higher risk of transmitting infections like COVID. The club leadership would like to encourage all participants to wear a mask and complete a health check before attending any of our events to ensure the safety of everyone in attendance. Please reach out to the club if you have any questions.
