How to Submit & Blog Rules

What I cover: This blog focuses on swing dances in NYC or nearby vicinity (easily accessible by mass transit) with Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues and Charleston, but not mixed ballroom or fusion events.

Please do not submit gigs that have less than 2 sets.

Please do not submit restaurants without a legitimate dance space without room for at least 3 couples.

Workshops are posted at my discretion, mostly traveling instructors, as I don’t have time to post them all.

How to Submit: If you wish to submit an event, please use the form below and include WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW MUCH. I will not consider gigs without the band name listed and I am not posting personal phone numbers. If we are friends in real life, just send me a Facebook invite. I’m not accepting friend requests from band leaders / managers I do not know.

Deadlines: Submissions should come in no later than midnight on Thursday of each week, as we aim to publish once per week on Friday or Saturday. Important note – I am VERY busy, so please try to get your event out in a timely fashion, as I don’t guarantee if/when last minute updates will happen.

Important Notes: These postings come from various Lindy calendars, message board postings, Facebook invites, and emails. If the information is public, I will post it and will only do revisions for critical details.

No Argument Policy: Please note… organizers/band leaders, I do this for the swing community, I have no time for debates or disagreements, so I’m clearly spelling out what I will and will not do. I will not debate or defend my decisions, as this as a free service for the swing community, and giving me headaches jeopardizes longevity of this blog.

Events are subject to change based on the event organizers, I catch as much as possible, but I can’t guarantee I’ll catch them all. If there are any question, check with the event organizers.
