“There aren’t many short-cuts to happiness, but dancing is one of them.”

Our community primarily revolves around dancing to Swing & Jazz music. Through various styles of movement, swing dancing gives us the opportunity to express the greatest music in American history while making life long friends and memorable experiences. There is more to swing than you know, learn more today!


“Hard to admit, but our grandparents had way better style. “

If you are looking for an excuse to get dressed up more often, you must try Swing Dancing!  For those not yet interested in the fashion side of things, don’t worry since it isn’t compulsory, but we are pretty sure your gonna love it once you try! Beside, the pencil mustache is back! 


“Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals.”

Learning to Dance increases your understanding and appreciation of music. Whether you already love Swing & Jazz music, get ready to create a whole new connection to the most expressive and exciting form of music the world has to offer. Who knows, you might end up learning to play someday!


Let’s face it, friends make life more fun!

Dax Hock and Sarah Breck were traveling the world teaching workshops 30+ weekends a year…then they had a baby and everything changed. In order to spend more time at home, this international couple opened the Lindy Loft where you can now get some of the worlds best swing dance instruction year round locally here in Los Angles.


Dax & Sarah have been teaching, competing, social dancing, performing and coaching for the past 15 years. They are two of the most experienced dancers on the circuit who are featured instructors at the worlds most prestigious swing dance camps. In addition they have performed on Dancing with the Stars and play the lead roles in the feature film Ctrl+Alt+Dance, a new indie film built around swing dancing and Lindy Hop.


We believe in social dancing and everything we emphasize in our classes is designed to make social dancing more fun, interesting, comfortable, musical, and creative. Learning to dance should be both fun and continuously stimulating. We have a tiered motivation system allowing beginner students to feel more comfortable and advanced students to get more of a push to improve. We emphasize superior technique, connection, rhythm and movement over just doing learning moves.


The Lindy Loft is LA’s only full time Swing Era Dance studio. We teach all things that swing and our venue is fully dedicated to Dancing, Fashion, Social Dancing, Music, History, and Swing Culture. We want the Lindy Loft to be a place where people can come learn, dance, play music, discover, meet and much more.
