Swing Fling is
the DC area's oldest and longest running West Coast Swing
dance weekend. It's always been primarily a West Coast Swing
weekend but over the years has also featured Shag, Hand
Dance, Lindy Hop, Hustle and Salsa. It continues
as an original World
Swing Dance Council (WSDC) member and was a founding member
of the National Association of
Swing Dance Events (NASDE). The entire operation is now under direction of Dave Moldover's Dance Jam Productions.
The schedule and format will be
similar to that of the wildly popular
MADjam weekend also
produced by this team. We are currently in the process of
collecting archival photos and video from Swing Fling's early years to
preserve some of it's legacy. If you have anything to
