Calendar of Swing

The Huntsville swing scene is growing. However, there still are not many venues devoted to swing dance. Therefore, some of the events listed here may include swing as only one of the dance components. Listings in red indicate a recommended event with an emphasis on, or a special appeal to, swing dancers.

Note. This web site is dedicated to spreading Lindy Hop and swing in the Huntsville area. Therrefore, the descriptions on this page are presented from the perspective of a swing dancer. If you think something is being slighted because it does not contain a lot of swing, you are probably right. You will have to look elsewhere for a more balanced view of dancing in Huntsville.
