Is your kitchen too small to dance in? Ours too!
So, we are offering a new, roomier option for Chicago’s social dance community. You may now pay a discounted rate for floor time, so that you can practice with a partner or classmates right here at the studio.

Tuesdays 11:30am – 6:30pm (5:30 – 6:30pm*)

If you find the above availability works for you, you may select an unlimited monthly practice pass.
There is one sound system per practice space, and it’s BYOiPod.
The studio will not be able to provide music for you. Be sure to bring your favorite tunes with you.
Cash, Check or Credit Card will be due at the conclusion of the practice session.
There is a $25 minimum for credit cards.
Reservations are Not Necessary
Reservations are not necessary. However, we recommend calling ahead to ensure there is space available during the prime private lesson time indicated by the parentheses above.
Sharing the Space
Because reservations are not necessary and cancellation policies are not applicable, this does not guarantee private use of a studio space. Please be ready and willing to share space with your fellow dancers.
The spaces available include the Studio I, Studio IIA and Studio II B. Those who are practicing will be given access to the largest space available at the time.
Availability is based upon a studio manager being present. At this time, Saturday afternoons and Sundays are not available. However, if you are interested in additional availability, please send us an email. If we find we have enough interest in monthly subscriptions, we will look into staffing those days and times.
Practice with Freelance Instructors
If you are studying with an instructor outside of Big City Swing, you are welcome to reserve studio space for your practice or lesson. The cost is $25/hour and reservations are required, especially if the music is not in the swingin’ jazz family. Call 312.243.0700 or email us to reserve your space.
