Around Los Angeles and Orange County you can find swing dancing almost night of the week! Sometimes it’s difficult to choose which events to attend. Below is a list my top picks.


Lindy Groove Halloween


Each year they host a great Halloween party with a costume contest. Most of the best creative costumes I have ever seen I have seen here.


Inspiration Weekend

Orange County

This weekend brings in a lot great instructors. You can get a lot of great instruction and social dancing at a relatively low cost. It also boasts fun competitions.


Joe’s Great American Bar and Grill Happy Feet Mondays


A great local venue that always has great live music. It’s a bar and restaurant so it’s a good place to bring non-dancers. It can get crowded and the dance floor isn’t very large so knowledge of floor craft is very helpful here.


Third Saturday Swing Funky Turkey


The third Saturday in November they do a really fun funky costumed dance with a unique contest not to be missed.


The Gorbals Thursday Nights

Downtown LA

Another terrific venue to bring friends who don’t dance to. Half of the people here are non-dancers who come for the delicious food and drinks. They get a nice surprise when the California Feet Warmers play from about 10pm-1am.


Dapper Day


Get dolled up and uber impress the lay people with your fancy dancing.

Dapper Best Local Events


California Balboa Classic


California Balboa Classic became an instant classic at its start in 2012. It’s a wonderful weekend for fellow Balboa lovers like myself.


Camp Hollywood

LAX Marriot

This weekend has fun themes, great national and international dancers, and a relaxed party vibe.


Atomic Pajama Party


Typically around New Years Atomic Ballroom hosts a pajama party with best pajama contests and a cereal bar. What more could you want?


Strutters Pre-Thanksgiving Party featuring Jonathan Stout


A great to burn off calories before Turkey Day. Jonathan Stout is a favorite among Lindy Hoppers so a lot of dancers show up.
