West Philly Swingers is UPenn's offical swing dancing troupe! We are both a social and a performance group. Members are required to attend lessons five times a month by our fantastic instructors Chris, Lauren, Greg, and Laurie and perform in at least one number in our show.
Thank you for participating in PILE! It was great to see all of you. You can relive the memories at our WP Swingers youtube account! Also look out for other future events :)
Members and alums who are available participate in PILE, Boston Tea Party, Lindy Focus, MAD Jam, NISE, and Liberty Swing. But competing is never mandatory! Sometimes we'll just attend the events for the great classes and the awesome dancing!
Our spring semester show is on April 14th and 15th at Prince Theater. All of our pieces are choreographed by our own members. We have a blast organizing our shows and our audiences have a blast watching them. They are not to be missed!
