About

Syncopated City Dance Company (formerly known as SwingFX) is a dynamic, New York City-based company, taking inspiration from the popular, jazz dances of the 1920’s-1950’s. Our work uniquely features both solo movement and social, partnered-dance elements, in traditional form or recombined into classical structures and dramatic scenes. The company roster includes some of the greatest Lindy Hop dancers in the world today, as well as classically trained dancers and specialists in other vernacular styles. We strive to continue to make new work, expressing much of our range: acrobatic Lindy Hop to saucy blues, and loose, earthy folk-jazz to Fosse-styled precision.

Under our former name “SwingFX”, Syncopated City’s work has been featured at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, The Kennedy Center, Ulster Performing Arts Center, and Jazz at Lincoln Center. We look forward to presenting ourselves as the new “Syncopated City Dance Company” in our upcoming performances!
