Tri-City Swing was started in January 2013 by husband-and-wife duo Kevin Greene and Michelle Marquardt. Tri-City Swing's mission is to bring to the communities of St. Charles, Geneva, and Batavia the joy of swing dancing and dancing to vintage jazz music. In February, local professional dance instructor Carl Linder began leading the swing dance classes, now being held at the Batavia Academy of Dance.
