We’re back in 2019 – July 12-14 – highlighting two of our favorite swing-era dances, Balboa and Lindy Hop, for 3 amazing days of dancing and music.

For those new to exchanges, an exchange is a weekend of social dancing with dancers from across the nation and around the world. It’s not about competitions or classes – just an opportunity to share your joy of the dance, to inspire and be inspired by your peers, and to thrive on other dancers’ energy.
