FAQ

Live jazz is the heart of swing. The musicians on stage and dancers on the floor engage one another in a lively conversation to create a magical feeling unlike anything else.

That is why we are proud we are able to bring live music to our dancers every month. Come join us and experience the joy of swing!

All class series packages include admission to our live band nights.

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.

Our Mission

“[Lindy hop] is the dance of freedom. It’s what freed us and brought us together.”

- Norma Miller
