New to swing dancing? You’re in the right place! We offer a variety of classes for beginning dancers, from a free 30-min intro lesson at our weekly Thursday dance, to multi-week class series in Lindy Hop and Balboa. Read on for details!


Free Mini-Lesson at Swing Ong King

We kick off our weekly social dance with a free half-hour intro lesson! This quick crash course will get you out on the dance floor in no time. We’ll go over some basic partner connection, the 6-count basic, and a few easy moves to get you started. No experience necessary, everyone welcome (even those with two left feet)!

Date/Time: Every Thursday 8-8:30pm (drop-in class)
Location: Ong King Arts Center, 1154 Fort Street Mall, Honolulu

No partner or dance experience required. We strongly suggest wearing comfortable shoes that stay securely on your feet (–> sneakers, not slippers!).

No partner or dance experience required. We strongly suggest wearing comfortable shoes that stay securely on your feet (no slippers, backless or high heels).
