Groove Juice Swing: Swing Dancing in Rochester, NY

Code of Conduct

Groove Juice Swing is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of workshops or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated at any event venue, including dances, workshops, competitions, Twitter, Facebook, and other online media. 

We hope that our dances, classes, and events will provide a chance for you to engage in social situations and learn new skills, pushing you outside of your artistic comfort zone. No other behaviors, speech, or actions that make our patrons feel uncomfortable, threatened, or harassed will be tolerated. Please do not offer unsolicited advice to other students in class out of respect for their learning environment. 

We reserve the right to take any action we deem necessary to deal with harassment. This includes verbal warnings, asking people to leave the event immediately without refund, banning individual(s) from all Groove Juice Swing events and contacting law enforcement officials. 

Alcohol Policy

While many of Groove Juice Swing's events are alcohol free, occasional dances will involve the presence of alcohol. Please drink responsibly, which means committing to never drive a car under the influence and reflecting seriously upon your personal limits and how you may act while under the influence. Inebriation is not an excuse for harassing behavior. Underage drinking or providing alcohol to those under 21 years will absolutely not be tolerated and may result in being banned from Groove Juice events.

Reporting Harassment

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of Groove Juice Swing or our event staff immediately. If you notice any harassment occurring on or around the premises of our events please also bring this to our attention. You can contact us by: 

  • Emailing us at
  • Approaching any member of the Groove Juice staff
  • Reaching out to a front desk volunteer
  • Leaving a note in our Suggestions Box

Groove Juice Swing is happy to help participants contact venue staff or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe and all complaints will be kept in strictest confidence. Additional resources are available at:
