Hartford Underground, a subsidiary of Connecticut Swing Dance Society, is a group of enthusiastic swing dancers who provide the opportunity for vintage swing dancing in the Greater Hartford area. We offer a weekly dance on Wednesdays 8:30 PM – 11:00 PM with a monthly series on various swing styles from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM and a brief 30-minute drop-in intro swing dance lesson. We now have a 30 minute Intermediate/Advanced Lesson and Practice Session from 8:00 PM to 8:30 PM on Wednesdays! Our seasoned teachers and community provide a comfortable and friendly environment in which to learn.

The Hartford Underground staff helps to coordinate classes, workshops, dances and other events to bring vintage swing dancing to the community! If you are interested in helping us do this check out our volunteering section below!

You can also donate to our non-profit organization. We accept monetary donations and equipment donations. Email us at info@hartfordunderground.com
