Vintage Swing Movement Joplin (2019)

Popular from the 1920s through the 1940s, swing dance emerged from an era dominated by jazz music and brassy big bands. Today, this high-energy, fast-paced dance has made a comeback locally, thanks to Vintage Swing Movement Joplin (VSM Joplin). VSM Joplin was formed to preserve the history of swing dance and inspire Joplin residents’ interest in this beloved dance. With simple beginner’s lessons and relaxed social dances, participants of all levels can learn and enjoy swing dance.
