    Boston Swing Central is an organization located in Charlestown, MA dedicated to promoting and ensuring the continued existence of the Lindy Hop and related dances. The Lindy Hop is an American form of swing dancing that originated in the ballrooms of Harlem during the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. Supporting the continued existence of this American art form includes supporting a network of teachers, jazz bands, DJs, and dancers in the Boston area. It is a volunteer-run organization for swing dancers, by swing dancers. It supports a core group of several hundred regular dancers as well as the public at large that is interested in learning this form of dancing. In order to preserve and forward Lindy Hop, this business provides a combination of both lessons and social dances on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday nights. The demographics of attendees reach across all races and ages that populate Boston and the surrounding communities. Attendees are anywhere from 18 to 88, and it is a true melting pot that brings disparate members of the community together. Attendees have been dancing from 5 minutes to 50 years, and many have been dancing two or more years. After two years of operation, the group has recently acquired its own studio, The Crosby Whistle Stop, in Charlestown, MA. It is a beautiful 3,000 + square foot space in an old mill building with exposed and hardwood floors ideal for dancing. The group has also engaged in a partnership with New School Swing to provide lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, as well as weekend workshops. Boston Swing Central has been recognized as one of the Best Dances in Boston by the Boston Phoenix in 2009. It consistently receives high ratings on Yelp.com with an average of 4.5 stars. Let’s face it, Swing Dancing is F-U-N! This group not only preserves history, but has a great time doing it!
