Swingin’ At The Savoy 2017 was here! Thank You & Feedback Survey

Hello, and thank you for being part of Swingin’ at the Savoy 2017!

Swingin’ at the Savoy 2017 was here, and what a great event it was! Each one of us who attended got to carry away a special gift — new knowledge or a new inspiration, a sense of belonging to a greater community, or to deeper history, and the feel of touching something bigger than any one person can put in words.

Many people have contributed to the success of this year’s event, we’ve listed them on our home page and we thank them for making it happen. It was fantastic to see so many of you here and to share this weekend with you, it couldn’t have happened without you. We had a blast and we hope you did too.

We want next year’s event to be better than this year’s. We are interested in getting your feedback on your experience of the event, and we have prepared a short survey. We would greatly appreciate it if you could spend about 5-10 minutes to fill it out:

 Your opinion is important to us!

Competition videos are on their way. We will add links here soon.

We would like to thank Larry Colen and Nicole Jacque for being our photographers this year, and Shimmytown for the photo booth. Photos are getting published on Facebook, please tag your friends. We will add links here soon.

This track is for you if…

You are fairly new to Lindy Hop, 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 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.
