Swing DJs

There's no better feeling than pressing play on a song and seeing the floor fill up with happy dancers! DJing is a super fun way to connect with the culture of swing and jazz. It's great for anyone who loves to create a party vibe on the dance floor, or for more introverted folks who like to nerd out a little bit away from the crowd, but still be part of the fun.

Resident Swing DJs

Cape Town Swing's resident DJs have been playing for the local swing dance community for the last few years, building their own special collections of swing jazz for lindy hoppers and foot-tappers alike. From ragtime to big band swing to rhythm and blues, our DJs are available to play at community parties, markets, bars, or any place that wants some old-school jazz to liven up the atmosphere.

    Learn to DJ for swing dancers

    Are you interested in learning to DJ, or in building your own collection of swing music? You don't need to be an experienced dancer to DJ, and you don't need to know anything about music to start out.

    We've got a little group going for anyone who wants to dabble in DJing for swing dancers. Join the conversation to learn about jazz, pick up some tunes from others in the group, and when you're ready, try your hand at playing some songs at a party.
