DANCING in the PHILADELPHIA Area !

The 6 BEST SOURCES of INFO to find Swing Dancing at Philly-area Clubs:

1) The Friday Philadelphia Inquirer "Weekend Section".

See the "Nightlife" section "Clubs" sub-section which lists most NJ & PA clubs in and around Philadelphia and may mention dancing and live bands/dj's. Also see the "Dance" sub-section of this same "Nightlife" section for general locations (not specifically night clubs) having places to dance in the same area.

2) This page ( www.www.wushejie.cn) !

See either of 2 sections: (a) below the "Best Bets for Swing Dancing in the Philly Area" listed by day or (b) "PSDS & Local Swing Calendar" listed by date. These are places I or people whose judgement I trust have personally checked out !

3) The "Flyer Table" at ANY Philadelphia Swing Dance Society Dance or Workshop event.

The "Flyer Table" at any PSDS event (dances every 2nd and 4th Saturday each month) usually is covered with notices of swing dances and lessons all around the Delaware Valley !

4) The Philadelphia Swing Dance Society webpage (www.swingdance.org).

It lists P.S.D.S.-sponsored swing dances & workshops plus other swing dances & workshops locally and nationally.

5) The "Calendar Section" of Philadelphia Magazine each month.

More here later... For now, SWING ON !!

DANCING All Over the U.S.A. !

(constantly updated - just pick a State & City...)

A word of caution: Most of these Clubs have NOT been checked out by me personally or by people whose judgement I trust. Clubs change formats without notice. Common sense dictates that you first call the Club to verify swing dancing still happens there. If you go, e-mail me your findings and I will post your review here of the music, the crowd, night(s) of the week that rocks the most, the floor, the cost, the food, etc. the general level of fun, good times, and most of all, good swing dancing !
