Down South Swing
Down South Swing is an Atlanta dance studio specializing in Swing Era social street dances such as Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston and Blues.

See the Down South Swing site for details and registration information.
Georgia Tech Dance Association
The Georgia Tech Dance Association (GTDA: The Swing Dance Club of Georgia Tech) will occasionally offer introductory blues dance classes. GTDA is not offering any blues dance lessons this semester, but we will add details here when GTDA's next round of blues classes is announced.
Monthly Blues Dance Lessons
Terminus is a monthly Atlanta blues and social dance event that tends to offer both introductory and special topic dance lessons before the actual social dance. These will often be blues dance classes, but will occasionally cover other social partner dances.
In January 2018, the Down South Swing Beginner Blues Dance Bootcamp is the same day as Terminus, so you can go to the bootcamp, grab dinner and then jump right into Terminus
Blues Dance Workshops and Intensives
Brickyard Blues is an weekend long Atlanta blues dance workshop March 9-11, 2018. If immersing yourself in blues dance classes all day and then social dancing the night away to excellent blues bands and DJs sounds like fun, then make plans to attend Brickyard Blues. Don't miss the pre-party Thursday, March 8, 2018.
