This Week in Swing NYC Swing Dance Events – June 26, 2022


Eileen’s notes:   

As people return to swing dancing, do not be surprised if you are asked by a potential dance partner about your vaccination status.  We are a welcoming community, but the tri-state area was hit hard and we want to be safe.   Please be honest.  

 I have updated for current vaccine / mask requirements, but this is a changing target.  If you are concerned, please check FB invites or with the event organizers for further information.

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, watch a couple of videos and check back often as we continue to do updates.
