The West of Boston Dance Calendar

This webpage offers information on (swing) dancing that is west of Boston with the demarcation line somewhere between Route 128 and I-495, but still east of the 413 area code. This makes this area Central Massachusetts. Some of the events/places mentioned here are technically outside Boston but they may also appear in the regular Boston listings (mostly because I felt like it). If something that is outside Boston but still close to the city, you might want to check the page for dancing in Boston or in the Boston Calendar.


Any events and venues listed on this page can be cancelled without notice. Note that some of them are suspended during the summer. If you teach classes, hold workshops, play in a band, or hold dances, please read the list of frequently asked questions and follow the format guidelines when asking to have your information listed here.
