Our Intercollegiate program invitescollege students from all over the western United States to gather in Denver for a weekend and show off their creativity and love for this joyous dance. Many are learning to dance for the first time and only started in the autumn. With us they’ll learn from world class instructors, deepen their world knowledge through a connection to the complex history of african-american dances and on Saturday night each school’s team competes for the title of Swing Battle Champions!"
