This webpage is part of a larger website run by someone who is focused on swing dancing in Boston, Massachusetts and this page is provided as a convenience to readers who might be interested in looking for possible dance venues in New Jersey. However, I do not live there and can't personally confirm every venue and their events. With that in mind, I suggest calling up the dance venues to confirm their dance events.
