What we're about

Welcome to The Greater Lehigh Valley Dance Network.

Spanning primarily Ballroom and Swing genres of dance, my focus will be on Swing, especially, the West Coast Swing and Hustle.

I dont hold dance events but I and others list them here. I utilize this forum mostly as an information hub for dancers.

Just to be clear, I do not produce these events nor do I get any monetory compensation from these events. I mearly enjoy dancing and spreading the word, "Here are dance events..enjoy!!"

What is posted here is not limited to what I am interested in...you, the members will drive the content, if you choose. All you have to do is suggest!

My goal for this site is to make it the premier source of consolidated dance information in and around the Lehigh Valley. This area includes parts of NJ, NY, Del, Md and major National Events, providing dancers with information on instruction, dances, seminars, festivals and links along with being a communications hub for dancers throughout the region. Use the Message Board..it is for you.

I will be leaning heavily on the Membership for leads, ideas, events, information and direction of this group. Some of you may want to post to the calendar events and you are most welcome. After all, this is your group.

Now get out there and dance! See you all on the boards!!
