Hey, did you miss us? It's a new year of swing dancing, here in Cache Valley, and we're starting the year off right with a Grand Opening Dance on Thursday, September 9th. Don't miss it! Also, this year we'll be (slowly, sorry) revamping the website, so it'll be easier to get information about what's going on in Logan. Anyway, welcome back and enjoy the new school year!

For those of you who missed the Harlem Nights 2010 and Utah Hellzapoppin' Competition, you missed out. It was a kickin' weekend full of classes, 16 hours of dances, and competitions!

We'd like to give props to Justen Hansen and Alexis Kragenbrink for winning 1st Place in the Utah Hellzapoppin' competition. Hope they spent the $1000 grand prize on new shoes, because they sure burned up the floor with their old ones!

Break out your calendars, because team tryouts are this Saturday in HPER 215 from 10am - 2pm. A solo routine, along with a partner dance will be taught and performed as part of the tryout. Our teams have performed all over the state, and even placed in the Intercollegiate Swing Competitions in Colorado. This is something you should seriously consider doing.

Swing Club has joined forces with various other dance organizations to form DANCE UNITED!!!! We will be meeting at Club New York every Tuesday from 7:00pm to midnight. Lessons are taught from 7 - 8pm. Dancing continues from 8 - 10pm with Swing in one room and Ballroom in another. From 10pm through midnight, Swing and Ballroom merge into one room while Country begins in the other. Sounds confusing,but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

This coming Tuesday (September 1st) is the first Dance United... um... dance. So in celebration of this event, the first 26 people to come to lessons get in free! For the rest of the year, D.U. dances will cost $4 per person, $2 for members. Membership costs only $5! Rumor has it there are T-shirts, too.

It's a new year! We're looking forward to another kickin' (literally) semester of some swinging good times!

Swing Club has undergone a slight change to its basic functionality this year. We will be holding club dances at a different time and place (information to be posted soon).

Also, Tryouts to be on the USU Big Band Swing Team have been set for saturday Septemeber 12th. A time has not yet been scheduled for sure but we'll let you know when it has. We anticipate it being in the morning and lasting a few hours (ie, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.) So keep that date on your calendar open if you want to be on team.
