Check out our First Friday dances!
Happening the first Friday of every month, we feature a different theme for The A Train! Check out what the upcoming theme is by visiting our Facebook Group. Every first Friday, we also feature a bar in the ballroom, hosted by Swing Dance Calgary, so make sure and bring some extra cash to enjoy a cocktail!
And… make sure you check out our Live Music House Band – The Rhythm Barons!
We try and feature live music once a month! Our goal is to bring classic live jazz music to our dancers at an affordable price, so that everyone may enjoy live music! These guys LOVE playing for dancers, so help support local live jazz music and come cut-a-rug with us!

Commonly asked questions:
Q: How should I dress?
A: First Fridays and nights when we feature LIVE MUSIC tend to be more dressy. Otherwise, it’s completely up to you? Bust out your best dress shirt or dress, or come in jeans and a t-shirt! Whatever is most comfortable for you!
Q: What type of shoes should I wear to swing dance?
A: Again, we suggest whatever is comfortable and safe for you to move in. In general, we recommend the ladies don’t wear crazy high heels, because not only is it easy to twist/sprain an ankle in, but they’re not always the easiest to dance in. We usually suggest lightweight sneakers or keds, or flat sole leather/suede shoes, if you have them.
Q: I have NEVER taken a dance class before. Should I even bother with the drop-in lesson?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Our drop-in lessons are great fun for ALL skill levels – whether you have NEVER taken a dance class before, or you are a regular, you are GUARANTEED to have fun and meet LOTS of new people in the class rotation!
Q: Do I need a partner for the lesson and/or dance?
A: NOPE! We strongly believe in rotating during class. Swing dancing is a SOCIAl dance, so we want everyone to dance with everyone else and meet lots of awesome folks. No worries – we’d LOVE to have you come solo!
Q: What type of music do you DJ at the dances?
A: We DJ vintage swing/jazz and blues music from the 1920s-1960s era. That includes modern bands who sound like they could have been playing back in that era.
Q: What time does the dance end?
A: The dance starts at 9:15pm, and can go as late as 1am! It all depends upon how many people are still dancing on the floor. We’ll keep spinning the tunes as long as dancers keep dancin’!
Q: Do you sell water?
A: YES! We sell bottled water for $2 at the front table (when you first walk in the dance). If you want to bring your own water bottle, you are MORE than welcome to refill the bottle in the washrooms.
