Hello! I know that this has been done in previous years, so I am hoping to gather all swing dance events on the Playa, or places that I could create one at! (I can maybe DJ or teach lessons if needed.)
So if you know of anything, have any ideas, or want to help... here is the place to do it :)
Then I will eventually make a facebook group for it :):)
that sounds awsome. i am going to be attending burning man for my first time this year and i am a lindy hopper. so i would be very interested in helping out anyway i can. i am very excited about my first burning man experience.
Last year, i.e 2008, there was a pavilion with a live swing band and about 50-60 swing dancers dressed to the nines. I know because my friend and I met a couple from Washington who were swing dancers and we followed them to the Pavilion. Dang if I can remember where it was located, or what it was called, but I suppose that doesn't matter much.
We helped run a BRC Lindy Exchange in 2004. Lamplighters had a swing night, our camp Sunvalley did an East Coast swing night and a third camp (I forget their name ) did a Boobie Balboa Contest. Great fun.
Last year there was a swing band in the Red nose District tent. One of the best dances I ever been to.
We not going this year, but good luck with your event!
