Get in Touch

We’re the ones in charge of keeping the infrastructure of SDC alive, but if you have great ideas we’d love for you to pursue them! Approach any of us with your idea for an event, a gathering, or really anything that would contribute to the swing community, and we will give you some experienced guidance, a website and bank account to back you, and a name. We can’t wait to support your ideas!

Swing Dance Calgary, being a non-profit organization, is run entirely by the help of our members, aka volunteers. The benefits of volunteering include; a HUGE thank you from everyone in the scene (warm fuzzies!), keeping the costs down for everyone including yourself, ability to plump the volunteer section of your resume, and satisfaction of a volunteer task well done.
