Swing Dancing in San Diego

Does anybody know where I can go swing dancing in San Diego? I am here until Monday morning and the information that I've found is a little sketchy. Just let me know what you got. Thanks!

I have been extremely happy using Sony Vaio laptops to dj with in the last few months. However, I recently purchases a much smaller laptop designed for traveling. It's made by MSI and it carries a two-year manufacturer warranty. It's only a 1.5 Ghz Celeron, based on the Pentium m. I added a stick of...

I'd like to make a recommendation for that spot if I may. Mathew Rundle of Saint Petersburg, Florida would be an excellent choice.

I djed a wedding over thanksgiving weekend and I only charged $300, but from now on I am charging a minimum of $500. Djing a wedding is a lot of work, so I think it is fair. For friends, I've done if for free or took a small fee. I don't play the typical wedding music, so for me selecting the music ...

I am here hanging out in Herrang, but I don't have my cds yet so I can't dj until I get them. I shipped them to stockholm 2 weeks ago from Tampa and little did I know Stockholm is a bit far from Herrang. Anyway, I have heard quite a few people djed over the past few days. It's interesting in a way, ...

Tim Adams (Tampa DJ) and I saw him a little more than a year ago in Tampa back in December. I thought he was amazing and the rest of his band was tight. He mentioned how much he enjoyed playing big band music even when he was booked for a blues show. I thought he was thin too, but I didn't think he ...

A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of selecting most of the music at ALHC for the American Semi fast division round. Afterwards, I remember Rueben commenting on yehoodi on how playing fast music was not necessary my confort zone. He also did say that he didn't think any of the music I select...

I have been doing this Lindyhop thing for about 3.5 years now and I most definitely did not get into it because I wanted to dance slow. Part of the problem people have with dancing fast is because they did not learn how to dance fast when they first started. When a good song comes on, I would like t...

Orlando really doesn't influence our scene at all. We are completely different and have been for years. We like it that way though, it's all good.

Well, I am not one to lurk. I just don't spend a lot time reading boards because of threads like this one, but I am always up for a good discussion. Well, I would not say that the scene in Tampa is growing. I believe that I've seen Hepjen once in Tampa. She spends most of her time in the Orlando are...
