Jack and Jill

A staple of any swing dance championships. A Jack and Jill competition is one where you don’t know who your partner will be. It’s very much luck of the draw, and a true test of your ability to connect with your partner in a lead/follow relationship.

Strictly Lindy

A straight shoot-out between swing dancing couples. Enter with a partner and test your skills against other couples.

Solo Charleston

It’s solo! It’s Charleston! Bust out your best Charleston moves from the 1920s and 1930s. The zanier the better!!

All-in Showcase

An exciting division for singles, couples or teams. Choreograph your own dance to your own music. Swing-style music and dance is expected, but otherwise you’re free to put as much showmanship and musicality as you please.
