  3. Hi SwingDanceLA,

    I am fairly new to the community. I have been doing some research on Frank Manning and swing dancing. It is nice see the homage you have given him. Wow, what a great website, so many helpful resources. I love the communal atmosphere you have created and mirrored from the dance community. Thank you! I plan on attending the Lindy Groove Halloween Party. I hope to see you there?!

    1. Hi Christine,

      Thank you for your kind words, and I’m glad you like the site!

      Yes, I highly recommend the Lindygroove Halloween Party! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it this year, but I’ll try!!!

      Best,
      Brian

  4. Lindy Hop Stop is having their 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY DANCE on October 15th! Great dancers, awesome dance floor, door prizes, free parking, and cheap drinks!

  5. Hi Brian,
    I am looking for a few dancers perform and to dance with senior citizens at an event in Westwood. The date is Thursday, October 11th from 6-7 p.m.
    Belmont Village Westwood
    10475 Wilshire Blvd
    Los Angeles, 90024

  6. Hi!
    I am so glad this site exists, thank you for all of the great information! I am a beginner/intermediate swing dancer coming to LA in November. Not only am I looking for a place to go dance, I would also like to find a studio that offers private lessons. I live in a rural area with no dancing resources and would like to improve. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Pam,

      There are many good teachers in L.A. Do you know where you will be staying? I’m located just north of Chinatown and would be happy to talk with you about what I offer.

      Best,

      Steve
