Five Day Swing Dance Party

December 27 - January 1

Jitterbugs from around the globe converge yearly on Asheville for a five day swing dance party culminating in a New Year's Eve extravaganza. All week long international champion swing dancers teach workshops in the original American social dance– The Lindy Hop — to hundreds of would-be swingers from every walk of life. The workshops and the event celebrate under the moniker Lindy Focus and every year, the top artists in the swing dance field spend one week focusing on many consider to be the true golden age of American pop culture: the Swing Era. The entire event is open to the public and come New Year's Eve, you will find the happiest feet in town tearing up the dance floor in Asheville's Crowne Plaza Resort, host of the event.
