Jazz Swing Dance


The Swing of Things - 2025 date coming soon!

Presented by the Jazz Bands & Jazz Ensembles of Wheaton North High School

Get into The Swing of Things with the jazz bands of Wheaton North High School. This annual swing dance keeps WNHS jumping with three hours of jazz and swing music performed by the student musicians at Wheaton North and jazz bands from Franklin and Monroe Middle Schools. Proceeds from the night benefit the entire band program.

The evening includes swing dance lessons, a raffle, and an online auction. Light refreshments will also be available.

Join us for free dance lessons from 6-7pm, followed by live music and dancing from 7-10pm.
