Welcome to Valley of the Sun Swing Dance meetup!
We're a group of people that loves of all styles of swing dancing and enjoy meeting up for dancing at local swing dance nights and events around town. This is a great place to meet new friends, have fun and enjoy dancing.
At some point the Meetup swing dancing group integrates into the swing community, and most abstain from responding "yes" because they are always a yes! Please remember this when scouting to see if you will know someone at the event. Come on out often enough, and you will recognize most of the dancers on the floor. You will see familiar friendly faces, those posted online as members of Meet Up.
There are plenty of opportunities to go swing dancing several nights a week all around the valley. I'll post these events, but I can only host events once or twice a week, so I need help from other people who are willing to host swing nights or events. The responsibilities of being a host is easy, bring a table top sign (you can download one from this site), save a table, greet people, introduce them to others and make them feel welcome. If your interested in hosting please let me know.
Organizers will try to make it to most events, if you do not see the organizer/host of the event please enjoy the group lesson, evening, dance and you will be happy you showed up. It's truly a fun, friendly group. Bring a printed copy of the MEET UP logo and set it at your table/chair so other peeps from Meet Up can find you, that would make a difference ;-)
