New York City is the birthplace of swing dancing, which emerged with the explosion of jazz during the Roaring Twenties. The swing-filled dance halls of the early 20th century have since been cast aside in favor of deafening nightclubs, but fortunately, a few hallowed safe havens remain to help to keep swing alive.
Yehoodi’s Frim Fram Jam, ‘Fram’ for short, faithfully captures the environment of swing’s earliest days every Thursday night at the You Should Be Dancing dance studio. The space is small, crowded, sweaty, and alive with the sound of a thousand young and old stomping feet that make the all-wood floor creak and move like it has a mind of its own. To add that extra special ingredient, Fram sports a rotating cast of DJs that play authentic recordings from the 1920s to the 1940s. Admission is just $10 ($7 with a student ID), and the drinks flow from the adjoining bar at reasonable prices.
