Note from Eileen – fyi, I have had a couple of technical issues with the blog that made me have to recreate 2019 from scratch. I’m still working out some coding issues. If you see that I missed an event, please feel free to send me a note via the contact form. Formatting issues are still being fixed.

If you are an organizer or band leader and notice that something is missing, please reach out via the contact form and I’ll get it back up over the weekend. Thanks! Eileen

HEY NEW YORKERS… SOMETHING HAPPENED AND I LOST A BUNCH OF CONTENT. I WILL NOT HAVE TIME TO UPDATE UNTIL THE WEEKEND, SO PLEASE COME BACK

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.
