“[Lindy hop] is the dance of freedom. It’s what freed us
and brought us together.”
- Norma Miller
From African circle dancing, to the streets of great cities, to the modern dance studios, dancing has always been part of the human culture. Dance is more than entertainment: it is a form of communication that has helped strengthen the bonds between people for as long as we can remember.
The Breakaway believes in its positive impact. We want to share our vision of a better world, one dance at the time.
Every month we make sure to bring live music to the dance floor! For many years, live music was the only thing you could find in ballrooms. We want to bring back the magic of those unexpected musical moments that make you fall in love with dancing all over again.
Live band nights are FREE with all class series packages.
