  • Imperial Swing is a cross between East Coast and West Coast Swing as it is done in slot and in the round. It started at the Club Imperial in St Louis. George Edick, who owned the club, let teenagers dance on the lower level and the swing dancers of the time taught them what was learned from their trips to the east coast. As people traveled around, they added parts of west coast, bop and Carolina shag to complement the dance and make it distinctive. “The Imperial” has elements of “East Coast”, “West Coast”, “Carolina Shag” and “Bop”.

Everyone is welcome at club dances.  You do not need to be a club member.  Each dance club offers free or nominal cost dance lessons for beginners the hour before their dance starts.  Partners are not needed for the dance lessons.  Most clubs use the east coast styling of swing dance (unless stated differently below).  Each club has its own website that lists the dates of their dances.

The Midwest Swing Dance Federation has 9 dance clubs:

  1. Destination swing (west coast style)
  2. Jefferson County – Arnold
  3. Jefferson City
  4. Lake Ozark
  5. Moolah Shrine
  6. Midwest – Collinsville, Illinois
  7. South Side
  8. St. Charles

There are 3 independent swing dance clubs:

  1. JitterSwing
  2. Rebels (west coast style)
  3. Soul Lingo (west coast style at Just Dancing Studio)

For college students:

  1.  Washington University Swing Dance Club

Dance halls with independent swing dancing dates.

Swing dance lessons are also available at Just Dancing Studio, U Can Dance Studio, and the Saint Louis Community College (Sherry Martin).
