About

Our Club

Two Smiling Dancers

We encourage a warm and inviting atmosphere

The Central Pennsylvania Swing Dance Club was formed to encourage participation in a highly energetic, unique, and fun style of dancing. The club currently hosts dances at The Green Door Dance Venue in Carlisle on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We also frequently meet for dancing during the week at other locations.

We offer beginner dance instruction prior to all dances to encourage the participation of newer dancers. Additionally, we regularly schedule advanced dance workshops and classes to help develop the skills of our more experienced members.

You do not have to be a member of our club to attend dances. In fact, when you pay your $6 at the door to get in, you become a member of our club!

Our Venue

Dancing at The Green Door

Dancers celebrate The Green Door’s first anniversary

Opened in the summer of 2004 The Green Door Dance Venue is the home of Central Pennsylvania Swing Dance Club. Complete with mirrors, mood lighting, a mural, and a wall showcasing some of the best swing dancers and musicians of all time, The Green Door provides a great atmosphere to dance in. The best in swing music is spun from the DJ booth, and the lounge area provides a great place to relax and chat with friends between dances. You can bring your own food and drink, or buy water and soda at the dance.

Regular dances are held at The Green Door every Tuesday and Saturday night. All ages attend and no partner is required. A beginner's lesson is held the hour before each dance and is included in the cover charge.
