- Charm City Swing
Charm City Swing, a Baltimore based non-profit organization, is dedicated to introducing non-dancers to the art of swing dancing. They run social dances every Monday night at Club Baltimore in Rosedale Maryland, teaching a combination of Lindy Hop, Charleston, and East Coast Swing during a beginner class. An additional social dance is held Friday evenings in Hampden.
After the class, a social dance is held where people dance to classic swing and big band music such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong; neo-swing such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers; blues like Sidney Bechet, Muddy Waters, and modern pop such as Rhianna, Gorillaz, and Christina Aguilera.
Intermediate and Advanced, 8 week series, classes are held every two months at the Vietnam Veterans Hall in Eastern Baltimore, Off Holabird.
Charm City Swing was started by Dorry Segev and Sommer Gentry in March, 2005. In order to make the venue more approachable, discounts are given to students and newcomers.
Charm City Swing was named Baltimore's "Best Reason to Go Out On A Monday Night!" by Baltimore Magazine's Best of Baltimore 2005
