Our mission at Savoy Central is to teach, demonstrate, and further develop social jazz dance in New York. These dances thrived in a society that permitted such freedoms of expression. Today, these dances still allow for creativity and innovation as they continue to evolve and grow. We hope you will join us as we embrace these dance forms. Disclaimer: This site does not claim to provide a complete listing of all social dance events in the area. It is edited by Paolo at his discretion.
