Barb City Swing Connection is a collaboration of three long-time residents of the DeKalb area who love dancing swing (East Coast swing, Charleston, and Lindy hop) and the blues. Brenda Hart, Tom Mack, and Susan Dockus dance regularly in the Naperville and Bolingbrook area and wanted to make swing more available locally. Brenda has been dancing for a number of years, has attended classes with instructors both from the Chicagoland area and of international renown, and has taught swing dancing lessons (with Mike Butler and on her own). Tom and Susan are former students of Brenda's who have joined with her to keep swing alive!
"Some people seem to think that good dancers are born, but all the good dancers I have known are taught or trained." - Fred Astaire
