It’s time to forget your blues and put on your dancing shoes!

Transport yourself to a nostalgic evening of jazz standards and lindy hop with UCF’s dance club “Swing Knights” Wednesday in the Garden Key Ballroom (Rm. 221) of the student union from 7-9 p.m.


“Taught by national swing dance champions Joel Green and Lacy Ward on campus throughout the semester,” as the club’s website stated, learn at both beginner and intermediate levels every Wednesday.

“Beginner lessons run from 7-8 p.m. and intermediate follows from 8-9 p.m.,” the club’s Facebook event page said. “Students and non-students are welcome to attend, and no experience or partner is necessary.”

First-time UCF students get their first set of lessons free and non-UCF students get only their first beginner lesson free, the page also stated.

“Non-UCF students are welcome to attend lessons and dances each week by paying a standard $5.00 entry donation.”

Club Membership is $40 and gives students access into every beginner lesson held on campus and also their Friday night dances, which include current radio hits, as seen on the SwingKnights website.

For students interested in joining, additional membership and pricing are as follows:

-$5 donation for one lesson, $8 for both OR
-$40 New Student Membership: all beginner lessons free, $5 for each intermediate lesson
-$30 Returning Student Membership: all beginner lessons free, $5 for each intermediate lesson.
