Meet the Clubs

Swing Dance

Info: The Swing Dance Club at JMU promotes social interaction between the students of James Madison University through the medium of Swing Dance. The organization encourages members to become more comfortable in social dance situations thereby removing the common fears that keep many from dancing. Swing Dance also gives students an opportunity to practice new dance moves, exchange ideas, and cooperate with others.

The JMU Swing Dance Club is dedicated to giving a fun, encouraging environment to any and all who are interested! Come for a week or two just to try it out; if you don't want to stay you don't have to. However, we think the swing 'bug' will catch you and you'll have found one of the greatest social outlets for your college career! The number of members ranges from semester to semester. A good estimate average would be 50-75 people.

  • President: Anna Bergin, berginar@dukes.jmu.edu 
  • Vice President: Jonathan Kilgore, kilgorjd@dukes.jmu.edu 
  • Secretary: Olivia Jewell, jewellog@dukes.jmu.edu 
  • Treasurer: Tori Hafner, hafnerva@dukes.jmu.edu 
  • Advisor: Dr. Charles Harris, Harriscm@jmu.edu

Beginning after Student Org Night, the Club meets regularly and plans social dances. The Club meets throughout the length of the academic year, and sometimes outside of the academic year (purely by choice). The JMU Swing Dance Club gives lessons for Beginners, Intermediates, and Team members. There are no tryouts for Beginners or Intermediates. After completing a semester of Intermediate lessons, any member is eligible to audition for Team.

Full-time students who are in good standing with the university are welcome to participate. If dues are required, all members must pay their dues in full. Anyone who enjoys a swingin' beat and loves to dance (even if they don't know how) will be greatly appreciated! For other membership questions and availability, seek council with the President and other Cabinet Members for options. Dues are $15. There are no other requirements, as traveling, etc is purely optional.

Beginner lessons are held Monday nights from 9-11pm. Intermediate lessons are held Wednesday nights from 9-11pm. Team practice is held Sunday afternoons from 4-6pm. Any changes to this schedule will be brought to the Clubs' attention immediately. All practices are scheduled to the Godwin Multipurpose Studio.
