    Learn what the event is on our introduction page.

  • How to be a good dance event attendee?

    We expect all attendees to be respectful of their fellow dancers and follow our code of conduct.

  • How do I register?

    Online registration opens September 30th at 12noon and closes February 19th at midnight. When opened, you can register here. Tickets may be available at the door, space permitting.

  • Where is the level check questionnaire?

    You can find it here. You must register BEFORE filling out the questionnaire.

  • Will there be housing available?

    We have housing guest/host applications forms to fill out here when registration is open.

  • Are there any crew member positions available?

    All our crew member positions have been filled for this year’s event.

  • What should I wear to the classes?

    Please wear dance shoes only to classes, we discourage wearing street shoes to class. You can wear any dance shoe or sneaker that you prefer, as long as it isn’t used on the street to respect the floors. Wear clothes that are comfortable to dance in.

  • Can I videotape at the workshop or dances?

    Videotaping is allowed in between classes but NOT during class. Please ask your instructors if they are okay with you videotaping them after the class. Videotaping is allowed and encouraged for demos and performances during the evening dances. If you post footage of the event on YouTube, please include a link to the Swingin’ at the Savoy website so others can know where to find more info on the event.

  • Why do I have to wear a wristband on my wrist?

    We have a strict policy about wearing wristbands on wrists. We were lenient in the past and unfortunately some less than honest people took advantage of this. Attendees MUST wear their wristband on their wrist to get into the workshops and dances.

  • I have another question not answered here.

    Contact our staff.

LEADER WAITLISTING

At this time, we have a number of leaders on wait list and it is unsure that we will be able to find you a spot. An alternative would be for you to sign up for a weekend dance pass and the à la carte morning classes. It’s a great opportunity to learn from the same teachers you would get in the track classes. Another option could be to sign up as a follower in our Newcomers track if you wanted to start learning the other role.

You can still email us to ask to be waitlisted.

FOLLOWER WAITLISTING

At this time, we have a lot of followers on wait list and it is unlikely that we will be able to find you a spot. We would suggest that you sign up for a weekend dance pass and the à la carte morning classes. It’s a great opportunity to learn from the same teachers you would get in the track classes. Another option could be to sign up as a leader in our Newcomers track if you wanted to start learning the other role.

You can still email us to ask to be waitlisted.

WHY IS THE CLASS SCHEDULE THE WAY IT IS?

Leaving aside the Newcomers Special track, we have 5 full weekend tracks, four teaching couples, and four large spaces (the multi-purpose room [MPR] is a small room). This means we cannot have all tracks in classes at the same time, and each track will have an empty slot in their schedule.

We do our best to:

FULL WEEKEND

All non-newcomer track groups are folded into a single pool for registration called Full Weekend. Once registered, you have to fill out our Level Check Questionnaire.

Track group descriptions are available here.

NEWCOMERS SPECIAL

This track is for you if…

You are fairly new to Swing Dancing, or have only taken a handful of classes. This is your first Lindy Hop workshop weekend. You’re looking to learn a lot and have a lot of fun. This track will provide just the right amount of classes.

It is a more affordable track perfect for new dancers. The track will be taught by instructors Adam Brozowski & Joshua Mclean.

PARTNERED SWING DANCING ROLES

Partnered swing dancing is a role-based dance. There is a leader and there is a follower. Both partners contribute equally to the dance, but in different ways. The leader is the one usually initiating movement and thinking about the dance in terms of shapes. The follower interprets the lead and moves accordingly, adding their own contributions to the dance. The dancers send each other cues about their movements and intentions through their connection as well as visually. The dance becomes an unspoken conversation between the dancers.
