We want to thank all of the outgoing SDC Board Members for all of their great work over the years they have been involved with the Board. All of their work this past year has been really appreciated, especially running the very successful AIW 2014. Each has made a significant contribution to the organization reflective of their unique gifts.

We’re the ones in charge of keeping the infrastructure of SDC alive, but if you have great ideas we’d love for you to pursue them!  Approach any of us with your idea for an event, a gathering, or really anything that would contribute to the swing community, and we will give you some experienced guidance, a website and bank account to back you, and a name.  We can’t wait to support your ideas!

 

If you are interested in Lindy Hop, you’ll find opportunities to dance in Calgary through the following organizations: Top Cat SwingToe Tappin’ Swing, and Diga Diga Doo.

All of our event info can be found at Events.
