Founded in 1994 Swing City was located at the VFW on Huron Ave in what is now the Russell Youth and Community Center. It ran love music swing dances, with some of the best local bands there for 10 years until 2004 and then moved to Newton, MA until 2008 when it changed hands and after some shuffling around, finally moved back to it’s origin at 680 Huron Ave in 2010. It’s been rebuilding a solid base of both dancers and bands and has become a genuine fun night out of swing dancing in the Boston area for both the beginner and the seasoned dancer.
