Swing Dance Events - Caveat Emptor!

The events listed on this web page are ones Mike & Mary have attended, or heard good things about from others whose opinions we trust.  Note some Lindy Hop events may also include classes & competitions for Balboa, and perhaps Collegiate Shag, i.e. Camp Hollywood.  This is not an all inclusive list….check out the Swing Planit web site for info on other events in the U.S. and worldwide.
