Misc Swing Dance Festival Details
*The Saturday Evening venue is large and awesome but does not have a wood floor.  Plan your shoewear accordingly.
*The Jack & Jill is on Thursday Night. This dance is the only thing not included in your weekend ticket.
*Daytime activities and dance classes are for all levels and all ages.
*Classes are first come first served.  Some may become crowded.
*All contests start at the beginning of band sets. This is helpful to know if timing is ever off.
*Finding The French Market’s Dutch Alley: If you are standing at the Joan of Arc Statue where Decatur & N Peters splits, walk across the street toward the river and you’ll find Dutch Alley. Its right behind all the shops and near Galvez Restaurant.
