Big City Swing indeed has big, BIG news. 

After 17 years in our beloved loft in the West Loop, our building has been sold to wonderful new owners. Unfortunately, we cannot remain in the space long term due to rising rent and the new owner’s plans for the space.

But, when one door closes, another opens and this time we'll own our own space. Drum roll please...

This fall, Big City Swing will be moving to a new location at 1850 N Western Avenue.

Fabulous features of our new location include:

  • 2 studios on the same floor

  • Free parking on Western Avenue, Armitage and numerous side streets

  • Incredible CTA access to the Blue Line Western stop

  • Easy highway access to the Fullerton exit on 90

  • Plentiful surrounding cheap eats and coffee shops, including the famous Ipsento and Margie’s Candies

If all goes as planned, we will begin our October classes in the new space.

What does this mean for you in the meantime?

July schedule classes & August’s First Friday will proceed as planned in the W. Randolph studios.

To help ease our transition and bridge the renovation gap, W. Randolph’s new owners are graciously allowing us to stay in both floors through the entire July session and August’s First Friday.

August & September Temporary Reduction to Studio I.

To accommodate as many students as possible, we do need to make one considerable shift in the schedule during these months. Most notably, Swing III, Lindy II, and Lindy III will move to Wednesday nights during this time.

The August schedule will be open for registration next week.

Drop us a line if you need any assistance navigating the temporary new schedule. 

September and Follies Schedule will be published shortly after August's schedule.

We'll have the September schedule, Follies group classes and Follies Pro/AM availability for you soon. 

Construction updates.

We'll share construction updates with you on the new studio as they develop. 

It’s quite a way to kick off our 20th year, and we’re so excited to start this new chapter with you!

Warm regards,
