Dear Slow Dance enthusiasts:

We are so excited to bring back one of our favorite events: Slow Dance Soirée returns to Rochester, NY, July 12-14, 2024!

Registration Is Now Open

Our tiered registration is now open on our Registration Page.  Spread the word and we'll see you in July!


We'll have three simultaneous classrooms all weekend so you can get the most out of your experience wherever you are in your Slow Dance journey.  Along with varied slow dancing classes, we are also very excited to feature Slow Balboa classes this year!


We'll also feature fun and exciting competitions during the weekend, including a Short Showcase (1:30 max length, 2-6 dancers) and a Slow Dance Mix & Match.  Keep an eye out for more information soon!

Friday Late Night Backyard Pool Party

Pack a swim suit if you want to take a dip in the pool or the hot tub!  We'll have dancing indoors on a wood floor, and we're bringing back the "Groove Era" of modern Lindy Hop with plenty of Soul Jazz to keep your feet moving.  Shop for snacks and drinks before the evening dance so you can head straight to the party!

Saturday Late Night Slow Jam Party

The Lindy Compound will this year host something a little different: late night featuring Slow Jams of the '90s, '80s, '70s, and today!  After the clock strikes midnight, the magic begins. Unwind and dance the night away as we spin the most soulful slow jams from the golden era of R&B.
