What To Do With Your Easter Swing 2020/2021 Pass

3 / 23 / 2020

Greetings!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Seattle Swing Dance Club has cancelled Easter Swing 2020 and 2021. This has been a heartbreaking decision both years, but because we’re committed to the safety and well-being of dancers in the local and global community, it was simply the right thing to do. Please continue to support your professional dance teachers, as they will be greatly impacted by this event cancellation. The teachers would be grateful if you’d schedule a video lesson, buy a private lesson in advance, or purchase online classes.

Those of you who already purchased an Easter Swing 2020/2021 Event Pass have three options:

a) Use Your Pass for Easter Swing 2022!
We love this option because it helps out our cash flow. If you choose this option, no action is required on your part, and you are prepaid for next year’s event!

b) Donate the Amount of Your Event Pass!
The Seattle Swing Dance Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we always welcome donations so we can share passion for dance!

Note: Contact info@easterswing.org if you require a separate receipt for your tax deductible donation. Remember, tax deductible donations are accepted ANYTIME via PayPal!

c) Request a Refund
If you’d like a refund for your Easter Swing 2020/2021 Event Pass, please contact tickets@easterswing.org and we will promptly process your refund via the same payment method you used. (Example: If you paid by check, you’ll receive a refund check. If you paid with a bankcard, you will receive a credit on your bankcard.)

Note: All payments for intensives will automatically be refunded.

We truly appreciate your support during this difficult time, and hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe. We look forward to dancing with you at the EXCITING and UNIQUE Easter Swing 2022!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact: info@easterswing.org

Highlights

Laurbucks

Complimentary Starbucks coffee is provided for all guests in the ballroom throughout the weekend, sponsored by Seattle’s own Laura E. Hunter! It’s a great pick-me-up for those early morning workshops and nighttime social dancing!

Minty’s Bar

Our ballroom features a 3-tier, raised bar & lounge where you can enjoy an adult beverage (if you’re 21+) while you watch the dancing and competitions!  Its namesake is the beloved Jim Minty, who was the event director for many years.

Premium Seating

Want a spectacular view from a comfortable couch or a front row seat at a reserved table? Seating availability is limited and currently almost sold out! Order a premium event pass to get your reserved seating before they’re all gone! 

Easter Eggs

Contest winners (1st-5th place) can look forward to taking home a beautiful, blown-glass Easter egg!  These unique, artisan trophies are hand made locally in Seattle just for Easter Swing, and feature a new design each year.

Competitions

Competitions are an exciting component of any West Coast Swing dance convention. We are a sanctioned member of the National Association of Swing Dance Events (NASDE), as well as the World Swing Dance Council (WSDC), and participate in the Rising Star Tour.  Please review the Competition Rules prior to competing. Posted rules are subject to change without notice. Rules are also available during the event weekend at the Competition Registration Desk. Scoring by Mark Slater, Step Right Solutions.
