Hey Swing Club!
Thanks to all who came to our interest meeting last week and the dance on Friday! No worries if you weren’t able to make it last Monday– we’ll review everything we taught.

Collegiate Lindy Hop Championships
February 16-18, Washington DC, $40
Registration is still open for CLHC! This is a weekend of workshops with amazing instructors, dances at night, and optional competitions. There’s info about everything on their website, which is also where you should register!
The event is $40, and we usually get about 60% back from UVA. When you register, please forward your receipt to both me (esp3uc) and Nicole (nrc5cf) so we have that for the reimbursement request. Please also include what time you’re generally available on Fridays so we can coordinate driving. We’re also looking for more drivers so if you can drive, let us know! We’ll be staying at the houses of Kaitlin and Nicole’s families so just us know if you plan on staying there or not.

We’re going to read American Allegory: Lindy Hop and the Racial Imagination. I’m trying to gauge interest so please fill this out if you’re interested!
