Uptown Swing Collective a friendly and inclusive community of hot jazz enthusiasts. We are passionate about creating intergenerational connections between musicians, dancers and toe tappers, by regularly providing live music in an accessible and welcoming space in the heart of New Westminster.

We believe in supporting and encouraging newcomers of all skill levels, and providing an atmosphere that promotes self-improvement and personal growth.

We believe in preserving and nourishing the roots of jazz music and providing opportunities for young musicians interested in playing early forms of jazz.

We believe in providing a welcoming, dancer-friendly environment that allows participants to be playful and joyful, while prioritizing safety and good dance etiquette.
