Swing dancing is a weekly dance held Wednesday nights from 8 to 11 p.m. in the Gordon B. Hinckley Building. Students don’t have to know how to swing dance to attend.
In the first hour, students are divided into gros and learn various dances such as the Lindy Hop, the Charleston, Balboa and West Coast Swing.
Every gro has at least one instructor, who teaches dance steps and answers questions.
Swing dance manager Shawni Wilcock, a senior studying music education, said she enjoys seeing people improve throughout the semester.
Swing Dancing at BYU-Idaho costs $1 with an I-Card and $2 without.
Bri Cisar, a junior studying computer science, said she tries to come every week. She said she likes meeting people and seeing friends at the dances.
