Hey everybody! Somebody told me to post this here, and sorry on the short notice.

I'm doing a country ballroom waltz workshop and social dance waaayyy down in Socorro at NMT today. Workshop starts at 2 and will go until 5 in the Macey Center. Social dance starts at 7 and goes for a couple hours in the Student Activity Center. Bring your dancing shoes and have fun!
I tried to go last night, but there is no parking anywhere! Suggestions?
Jitterbugs Anonymous... Come on out to the Rio Grande Jazz Society Mardigras shindig. 3 hours of live swing music, all bands, no amateur jam session this time. $2 for students!
Rio Grande Jazz Society Mardigras Dance!
will there be a dance tonight?
Who's the band?
Hey Jitterbugs - please post here if you are interested in working on a "zero to 60" routine - we'll help connect people as best we can!
(A good first start would be to find a song you love, listen to a it a lot, and then film yourself dancing to it... see what you like... )
Hey there,
Intercollegiate swing battle is being hosted by myself and lindy lions at UCCS colorado springs this year. We'd love for your club to make it out to the event and were curious as to what dates work best for you weekend wise, and what we could offer at this event that would incline you to come? We are already planning the free workshop aspect, will have self care courses, aerials courses, at least 2 panels on running college clubs and competition/presentation, as well as a live band. The only fee would be the sunday contests.

Please feel free to get back to me via facebook thanks!
Hey everyone! I've been asked to remind everyone that Swingdependance is coming up in a couple weeks in Phoenix! It's an awesome event that includes a pool party and three days of classes in Lindy Hop, Charleston, and S**g. If you were a paying, student member of JA this past semester you get a discount which allows you to attend the full weekend for $75 (+$2 service fee)! However this expires at 11:59pm on June 14th so you only have a couple days left.

Albuquerque scene already has quite a few carpools organized and housing is available so if you are interested let me know soon!!
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and I hope to see you all there :)
Hi everyone! I'm an East coast swing / St. Louis S**gger from Tampa, FL flying in for a possible interview. Is there any dances happening on the 24th? I have a free day in the city.
Does anyone not have a ride and need one?...

09/05/2016

Hey everyone! So we've made progress with securing Hokona Hall again for this year however, the earliest we could use the space is still 3 weeks away! We were wondering if you guys would be willing to TEMPORARILY meet somewhere else so we could at least start dancing and having our lessons? We'd probably be somewhere in the SUB and there is a large chance that we'd be dancing on carpet. If you are interested in this at all, LIKE this post so we can gauge interest before we proceed....
Thanks so much guys and we hope to see you soon!!

Hey all you lovely people! School is officially back in session which means that JA will be starting back up soon!! This Thursday is the Activity Fair on campus and we're looking for some people to swing by any time between 10 and 2.

Thanks to your help, JA will be attending 505 Stomp this year!
