Groove Juice Swing: Swing Dancing in Rochester, NY

GJS Manifesto


Manifesto Community ImageWe strive to create a dance community which is inclusive, friendly, and social. We encourage people to be kind and compassionate to each other. We all act as mentors to encourage and nurture beginner and advanced dancers alike.


Manifesto Image Teaching
We provide a place for students, teachers, and community members to learn, create, and grow. We support and foster self-expression. Teachers especially enjoy helping students reach their individual goals regarding social dancing, performing, competing, teaching, or having fun.


Our events and workshops foster a stronger, more sustainable community of dancers, by improving creative thinking, learning, and providing growth to all levels of dancers and the entire dance community. We strive to create and host events which are affordable and accessible to everyone.
While not officially a not-for-profit, we act as one.

Manifesto Image Music


We help bridge the gap between music and the dance. We support local and national swing musicians by employing bands, purchasing their CDs, and attending their shows.


Manifesto Image History

We share and teach the history of the dance. Lindy Hop has long and deep historical roots which are the foundation and inspiration of our modern dance scenes.



We're happy when we're dancing, and sharing
the love of dancing with the community around us.
