Attention Vinnies Patrons,

Regretfully, I need to announce that all Vinnie' s classes and dances will be cancelled as of today 3/12 until further notice, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be monitoring this very closely and communicate regularly regarding this situation.
Thanks,

ABOUT US

Vinnie's Jump & Jive opened its doors on Main Street in Middletown, CT in 2000. An innovative program of the Community Health Center, Inc., located just down the street, Vinnie's was established to promote healthy lifestyles in the community. Although originally centered around swing dancing, Vinnie's has evolved over the years to offer an eclectic range of dance and movement styles.

In addition to classes, Vinnie's regularly hosts events on-site and throughout the community that complement our regular offerings. Vinnie's hosts large dances and workshops that draw people from surrounding states, as well as social events and art shows.

Vinnie's Jump & Jive is, in fact, named after a real "Vinnie."  Vincent Amato, a long-time Middletown resident and owner of Amato's Toys on Main Street, originally donated the space for classes. To thank him for helping us get started, we decided to make his name forever a part of the dance hall.
