I'm trying to collect all the basic information about the various Swing Dancing venues:

BYU Swing Club
Elite Hall
Downtown Stomp
Savoy Swing Nights
U of U Swing Club
USU Swing Club

Far too much of the info about places, dates, times, lessons, dances, etc., are spread across these web-boards, Facebook, or other websites. And far too much of it is quite out-dated.

Could the leaders of all of these Venues PLEASE post all their basic info here, & update & coordinate your various websites?

I highly doubt that the info is going to be updated here, but I'll link you straight to the facebook page where the BYU Swing Kids Club does most of its business these days.
