Better than any high school dance

Swing out, sister.
Swing out, sister.

When the week ends, it’s time to relax, enjoy the company of friends and soak in as much weekend fun as possible, but even nightlife can become routine or mundane. That same restaurant with the same group of friends eating the same entree. While Albuquerque has a lot to offer, sometimes it’s hard to find that new evening outing. Have no fear and let me swing this idea by you.

Rhythm Dance Company has created Saturday nights full of jazz, fancy footwork and an eclectic mix of locals. From 8:15 to 11:15 p.m., this quaint dance studio opens its doors to the public for Saturday Swing. And let me tell you, it’s an absolute blast. For a few bucks, you can dance the night away and be transported back to the roaring ’20s (perfectly apropos of the The Great Gatsby’s upcoming release). Even if you have two left feet, you can still join in on the fun. Rhythm offers basic swing classes before every social dance at 7:30 p.m. for a few extra bucks. As soon as you’ve learned your level one moves, you’d be surprised how quickly you transition from memorized steps to fluid partner dancing. Once you’ve tuckered yourself out from all those spins and dips, you’ll notice the pleasant diversity of the students. You have your regulars—who move with amazing grace—teenagers looking for a different kind of fun, beginners (like me) just trying to master the step-ball-change and every other type of person you can imagine. The dancing is such fun, but the crowd that attends “Saturday Swing” is what makes it truly memorable. You’ll dance with and meet people of all sorts as you become part of swingin’ little community for one night. Try something new. You just might discover your new favorite weekend outing.
