What's the scoop?  No, not ice cream - but what's the scoop on swing dance eventsHyperbole is rampant and commonplace these days, especially in swing dance event promotion on FB, on event web sites, etc.   Words like “awesome”, “amazing”, “fantastic”.... are so overused those type words have almost lost any real meaning.  It can be a real challenge separating fact from fiction for swing dance events.

So Mike & Mary are going to provide info on (1) future swing dance events, and (2) provide a review of selected events we attended - - called - - What’s the Scoop?  Click on this link to get the scoop!
