SwingDance.LA is the number one Google search result for “Los Angeles Swing Dancing”. That’s why I encourage you to promote your Swing dance event here for free! Here are some ways for you to promote your swing event, band, lessons, or dance troupe on SwingDance.LA for FREE.
HOW TO ADD YOUR EVENT TO THE LINDY CALENDAR
Note, the new way to add your event to the calendar is to simply post the information on my front page comment wall. No need to fill out a form!
1. Post your event on the event on the front page Comment Wall
You can leave a written description of your event or upload your event flyer in all its glory (not just a link, but the actual flyer!). This can have a great visual impact, and it’s just below the calendar, where a lot of people will be looking.
2. Or, Place a Classified Ad for your Event
These ads will appear at the top of the home page – excellent publicity for your event! Click here to start.
3. Or, Post your event on the LA Lindy Hop Facebook Page
I have a pretty robust Facebook Page, so go ahead and post your event on it!
The Lindy Calendar Requirements
If you do any of the things above, I’ll see your event and add it to the calendar if it’s appropriate. To be listed on the Lindy Calendar, your event must meet these conditions:
It must be a Swing dance event!
I will make exceptions for Blues. Sorry, no Tango, Salsa, Ballroom, or West Coast Swing on this site. And I generally don’t post lessons or else it would get out of control quickly.
It needs to have a dance floor or space to dance.
I won’t post jazz concerts that don’t have space to dance. Dancing is the whole point. Any true swing dancer will say that playing swing music without providing space to dance is cruel. Some restaurants push this limit by not having a true dance floor. I will still post these if they push tables out of the way for dancers.
It needs to be in the greater Los Angeles or Orange County area.
If your event is out of town, I encourage you to post it on the comment walls. However, the calendar is only for local events.
There needs to be a website or Facebook page for me to link to. IMPORTANT!
The Lindy Calendar needs something to link to. Create a Facebook Event for your event if you don’t have a website.
If you have a special event, can work on a special promotion. Let me know what you have in mind. For example, the Hollywood Bowl offered SwingDance.LA readers a discount tickets to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Leave a comment below to discuss.
Write an article for SwingDance.LA
I’m always looking for content! Talk to me in advance and we can work on an article about your event that would work on SwingDance.LA.
