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.

Caveat emptor!   Hyperbole is rampant and commonplace these days, especially in swing dance event promotion on FB, event web sites, etc.  It’s a challenge separating fact from fiction – – so buyer beware!  You can also check out our What’s the scoop? feature (see below).
