Leeds Swing Exchange 2017

Bookings have now opened for Leeds Swing Exchange 2017!  Click here to visit the website and book now!

Leeds Swing Exchange is an annual weekend of purely social dancing and other activities for swing dancers of any level.

It is happening this year on the August Bank Holiday 25th – 28th August 2017!  For the Early Bird price of £60 (£50 unwaged), you will get four days of dancing in some of Leeds’ most iconic and beautiful venues, four fabulous live bands, two late-night afterparties, a mountain of cake as well as loads of other fun non-dancing activities!

We believe that social dancing with lots of people is definitely the fastest way to improve, so even if you’ve just started, if you’re in Leeds, you should be at Leeds Swing Exchange!

For enquiries, please email leedsswingexchange@gmail.com

In the meantime, happy hopping!
