Field Trips

Milwaukee has a fantastic local live music scene.  From Jazz in the Part to Summerfest to neighborhood street festivals, we eagerly support any danceable band that comes our way.  Keep an eye out on our upcoming events page, Facebook, or our weekly newsletter for more information - and let us know if there's anything we've missed!

Lindy Hop Bus Tour

During the 2010 Milwaukee Lindy Exchange, we introduced the Lindy Hop Bus Tour of Milwaukee -- packing as many dancers as we can on a school bus,  taking a tour of the city, and jumping out to steal a dance at some of our favorite landmarks and hidden gems around town.  Sometime we even bring a band along.  It's become an annual tradition and one of our most popular events.
