Best Mid-Week Swing Dancing 

Tuesday Night Jump at the Verdi Club

If you're looking to get an authentic taste of swing dancing, you can do no better than Tuesday nights at the Verdi Club. The evening starts off with a half-hour intro into the basics of swing dancing, lead by Bay Area swing veteran Hep Jen. Then the Stompy Jones six-piece band takes the stage, pumping out infectious jump blues. Students from the classes offered before the dance fill the space, many decked out in the fashion of the era. A four-class package beginners and intermediates costs $65; drop-ins pay $20 per lesson. The place is welcoming and friendly: Everyone from the brand-spanking new beginner to your grandpa who still cuts a rug every Friday at the local community hall will feel at home dancing the night away.
