Vintage Jazz, Modern Scene

Jazz Attack is an entirely volunteer-run 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 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

Jazz Attack is a public group in community spaces, and it is intended to be a place that sometimes puts you outside of your comfort zone. In that sense, and in that sense only, it is designed to be an unsafe place. We want you to push yourself, learn new things, and meet people who will challenge you. 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 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. Our safer spaces lead is Lisa Pilchman
