Welcome to the home page of Mike & Mary Richardson, swing dance instructors & performers.  We teach and promote the original swing dances of the 1930's & 40's big band swing era - Lindy Hop & Balboa - and the great music of that era!  Keepin' it Real!

Out-of-Town Dance Events

o  The All Balboa Weekend (ABW) for 2022 is a go!  June 16th-19th.  There really is no debate - when it comes to a combination of high quality instruction, fun social dancing & competitions for Balboa - ABW is the best of the best, it's really that simple.  For Balboa dancers, this is a must attend event!  More info to follow as we get closer to the event.


o  Thursday, Feb. 10, 7-10 pm, Blair Carmen & the Belleview Boys play at Jim & Jack's on the River in Cincy.  Jim & Jack's has a nice dance floor, and good food.
