Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club



Spirit Moves Studio is located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, SC.

More specifically, it can be found at the foot of the overpass where Savannah Highway (Hwy. 17) crosses Folly Rd. Blvd. heading downtown. It can be a little tricky the first time, so here’s what you do:

From West Ashley or James Island, take Savannah Highway (Hwy 17) like you’re going downtown. Once you cross Wesley Dr. (the road that connects Hwy. 17 and Hwy. 61, by Ye Olde Fashioned Ice Cream), look for the overpass, and turn Right into the driveway near its base.

From East Cooper, or downtown, or I-26:

Cross the Ashley River Bridge. Get off on Highway 61 (St. Andrews Blvd., the first road on the Right off the bridge), and then take the first Left, which is Wesley Blvd. Then take the next Left, which puts you on Savannah Highway, pointed back toward downtown. From there, look for the overpass, and turn Right into the driveway at its base. You’re basically doing a little hook around to get there.

Just be ready for the turn, and you’ll do fine.

There are two parking lots – one to the Right side the building, and a bigger one to the Left.

The parking lot can be exited either onto Hwy. 17 headed downtown (or use the switchback on Hwy 17 to go back to West Ashley), or onto Folly Rd. headed to South Windermere.

And remember! No parking meters! No parking passes! No validation necessary!

Lookin' for the classic
Swing Dance Party?
AM I IN THE RIGHT PLACE?

If you are currently in the Charleston, SC area, or plan on visiting in the near future, and are interested in Lindy Hop, Balboa, Shim Sham, Tranky Doo, Swing dancing, or vintage jazz dances such as the Peabody, you've come to the right place.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO PAY?

Attendees can expect to pay a modest $10.00 per person on any night of DJ'd music, and "THE SAME" for our frequent nights of live music.  Students with valid ID's, and active members of the military will be admitted for $5.00.

WHAT DOES THAT INCLUDE?

Included in the price of attendance are levels of group instruction tailored to the needs of our guests.  Expect great music, danceable wood floors, and plenty of safe parking near the door!

WHEN AND WHERE?

The Hot Jazz Dance Club is currently based at Trudy's School of Dance, Island Plaza Shopping Center, 1291 Folly Rd., Unit 112, on James Island.  You can find us there every Friday Night, beginning at 7:00pm.

In addition, we are collaborating with Prohibition Lounge to provide live bands, lessons, and authentic Swing music every Wednesday night and, soon, every Sunday night, both starting at 7:00pm. The most current info on times, venues, and bands can be found on our NEWS and CALENDAR pages.

Prohibition is located at 547 King St. in the downtown Charleston area. Admission is free, but plan on buying off the menu.

Stay tuned as we continue to sort out exciting opportunities for Swing dancers, or those who just love the music of the era!

With the Hot Jazz Dance Club, there's nothing to join! No reservations or prior registration necessary! No partner needed! Just come with a lightness of heart and an expectation of a good time!
