Swingin’ At The Savoy 2016 was here! Thank You & Feedback Survey

Hello, and thank you for being part of Swingin’ at the Savoy 2016!

Swingin’ at the Savoy 2016 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 website and we thank them for making it happen. It was fantastic to see so many of you there and to share this weekend with you, it couldn’t have happened without you. We had a blast and we hope you did too.

FEEDBACK SURVEY
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 if you could spend about 5-10 minutes to fill it out:

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.
