More information:

Important Update 25/03/2020 – Airedale Swing Dance Festival 2020 postponed until 11th – 13th June 2021

In these exceptional circumstances of self isolating & social distancing due to COVID 19 it has been impossible to go ahead with the festival as planned in June 2020

Our venue Victoria Hall is currently closed until further notice but they have been very helpful in enabling the event to be rescheduled

Many of our dancers have already indicated that they would be willing to defer existing registrations & we hope to be able to maintain the original band line up as much as possible

Your understanding at this difficult time for all involved with ASDC & the wider Swing Dance community is appreciated, please watch this space for further updates……

Save the date for another weekend of dancing with Airedale Swing Dance Community, the 1st one was so much fun we are going to do it again:
