Welcome to THIS WEEK IN SWING NYC

Welcome to THIS WEEK IN SWING NYC!

After starting on Blogspot in 2008 and moving to WordPress, This Week in Swing, has a new home!

I hope everyone finds this to be an improvement to finding out where to dance, where to take dance lessons or where to go out and just listen (yes we can just go listen) in our love of all things swing!

Major shout out to Mandi Gould for helping make this happen.

Please check it out, what a couple of videos and check back often as we continue to do updates.
