Corvallis Swing & Blues Weekend: Jan 25-27

This month is the third anniversary of the Corvallis Swing Dance Society, and to celebrate, we are holding our biggest event of the year:

The Corvallis Swing and Blues Weekend, January 25-27th.

We are hosting three straight evenings of swing dancing, three straight evenings of blues dancing, and four bands: Frim Fram, the Rae Gordon Band, Gumbo, and Portland’s Worth.

We are so excited for this event, we gave it its own website, Corvallis Swing & Blues Weekend.

We are so excited, we made custom t-shirts.

We are so excited, we started working on it six months ago to ensure the event is of the highest quality.

But we are not the only ones making this event possible; over thirty of you have volunteered your time to put the weekend together. Twenty of you have already signed up to host dancers from out of town. Thank you so much for being a supportive community.

To make your reservation, please find our form here: http://swingandblues.org/rsvp/. We’ve sold about 45% of our available weekend passes, which are $40. The price increases to $50 on January 15.

We look forward to celebrating with you.
