Here are a few links to websites I personally find useful. I’ll add to these when I find special sites I think you might enjoy. But you can do searches as well as I can, so it won’t be a comprehensive list.
For anything related to Swing in Boston, check out www.havetodance.com You can find places to dance, reviews of music, teachers, classes, and fun editorials.
For Country Western dancing in the gay and lesbian community, go to www.gaysforpatsy.org for their schedule of dances and workshops.
For monthly line dances in North Reading, Smokies Bar is the place to be. www.smokiesbar.co
From an article in the Boston Globe about the revival of country music and dancing. Here I am teaching at Smokie’s (with a broken toe!) Read the article on the Globe Online.
