WHAT IS JAZZ ATTACK?
Vintage Jazz, Modern Scene
Jazz Attack is a 501c3 Nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading the joy of swing dance in Philadelphia. Jazz Attack is loved among dancers for:
Its welcoming & community-centered atmosphere where anyone and everyone can dance and hang out together
The variety of styles danced on the floor, including Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Solo (Vernacular) Jazz, Blues, and maybe even a little Collegiate/St. Louis Shag
Our fantastic teachers that cater to first-timers and experienced dancers alike through multiple levels of engaging lessons
LIVE MUSIC every month! Usually the second Thursday, but check our schedule
The best swing DJs around, playing the classic tunes of the era and their modern counterparts that keep the tradition and innovation going

Code of Conduct
Fostering a Safer Space
We understand that trying something new like learning a new dance may be challenging and put you out of your comfort zone, and we hope you grow to love and enjoy it! We believe in creating a welcoming, respectful community here at Jazz Attack for all newcomers and regulars. We believe in the value of the arts, expressive spaces, and vernacular jazz, and we believe in the mixing of diverse groups of people that these art forms encourage. We believe in humor and the power of not taking oneself too seriously. We believe that the world is micro-managed to an annoying degree, and that you should be able to unwind in an adult environment where you can participate in something real. In order to make this happen, all attendees at Jazz Attack and associated events are expected to familiarize themselves with our full Code of Conduct, which applies to all Jazz Attack events, in person and online. You can always reach out to Lisa Pilchman, our safer spaces lead, with any concerns, or catch any of our Jazz Attack organizers or door volunteers at the dance. We're all here to help!
