Swing Kat says:

I have to tell you, I appreciate your calendar and use it often but I find your recent designation “Older Crowd” extremely AGEIST and highly offensive. Perhaps you could find a more PC way to say you think younger people would NOT be interested in dancing with people who are not in their age group. Although I think that is backwards in itself…because if a “younger crowd” were to start going to these events, they would become more happening venues, right? I have seen that happen with several venues over the years, as different age groups start going to them, the venue becomes far less marginalized and a few are now pretty mainstream that ALL AGES definitely enjoy! But by designating an event offered to you in good faith that you will post it, which you do in such an AGEIST way, it essentially PREVENTS that INTEGRATION from happening . So you are basically causing segregation of these communities, and I feel it is misguided to attempt to label venues in this manner. I appreciate that you want everyone to have a good time, but I really urge you to think about dropping this designation, and letting people see for themselves if they are disappointed or if they can integrate into new venues which clearly want more people of ALL AGES to visit them, otherwise they would clearly give you age requirements for entrance! All of us young-at-heart people are one day going to be an “older crowd” and do we want to be labeled as such and have segregated venues only for ourselves?? Or do we want to help new dancers on the scene and enjoy a strong Swing dancing community with lots of new venues coming onto the scene and older ones always evolving. I urge you to think about what you are doing and the awesome responsibility you have to our community. Thank you.

Brian says:

OK, “older crowd” removed.
Brian

Swing Kat says:

Aw, thank you so much for your awareness and willingness to help us integrate into a strong and more united population of dancers of all levels who love Swing dancing and hopefully can help each other to thrive and love it even more. And a special thank you to you for your marvelous service to this community, keeping us all informed…you are our Navigation and we appreciate all you do so much! Thanks for your sensitivity and continued support of Swing dancers of all ages!!

This Saturday Night will be extra fun at PBDA!

Brian says:

Hi Tami,
That should be fun! Thanks for posting!
Best,
Brian
