Hi there,

I know this isn’t exactly the right forum, but I’m hoping to find someone who can teach western/country swing in LA and am having trouble. Would you be able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

The PBDA Calendar Listing only seems to list the UPCOMING Bands, and then (after the events), those band names disappear…can you help with that, Brian?

Hello,

I am a swing dancer from Santa Barbara. I was wondering if you would be open to posting Santa Barbara/Ventura swing dance events on here as well?

Thank you! I was thinking of starting something like this for my area. Do you think that I could get some help with getting something like this started. I have some basic website design development skills.

I stumbled across your website while first searching for Magic Castle info, which led to Club 33, which led to the Derby… because I was taking a virtual trip down memory lane.
I am a So. Cal native (Thousand Oaks) but now live in Georgia. I was young during the neo-swing revival, but I was in love with it. My dad brought me up on 40’s music and jazz and I was ecstatic that I could actually dance like the couples I saw in old films.
I found a friend forced him to be my partner and we danced everywhere we could. As soon as I could drive we were at Carnation Plaza (because Disney passes weren’t crazy expensive back in the day) on Saturday nights, or PDBA, or Memories, or Cats Corner, and finally when we were old enough- the Derby. I think we drove about a two hour radius from if there was dancing available! And without a cell phone or gps! Map quest printouts!
Anyway- I just wanted to thank you. I used to visit Nocture and I read your explanation of this great site. Thanks for still dancing- thanks for your continued love of swing to facilitate new and old dancers alike.
If I ever get back to CA I’ll know where to look to find out where I can jitterbug.

Hi Brian, things are really going well at PBDA again & we’ve made our weekly Saturday Night Swing Dances THEMED events for the Summer (to add to the fun). I just posted the various themes for July & August (even into Sept.) on our website, & I’m hoping you can add those to your Calendar. Thank you! And hugs for the amazing job you do!

Hey Brian,
I love the website. I am a moderator of a facebook group very similar to this webpage, but in New Orleans. I would love if you add our group to your section “Where to dance,” so people can join and learn about the different events happening in New Orleans while traveling here. Our group is Swing Dancers of NOLA. I am also visiting in July and will totally utilize this site. Look forward to dancing!

Would someone kindly direct me to somewhere in LA where I can take electro swing dance classes? Preferably westside, but I’m happy to drive.

Not having any luck searching on google.

Thank you!!

Sad changes. I miss the monthly overview of all LA/OC venues. This layout makes planning very difficult.
