WESTIE-CON – NOVEMBER 17-20
First-time-event and first of its kind in the West Coast Swing World: it’s a West Coast Swing Convention – with educational tracks depending on your interest, as a competitor, a deejay, or an event director….oh, and there will be dance workshops, competitions and late night dancing of course. At a fabulous resort in Orlando.

C.A.S.H. BASH – NOVEMBER 24-27
The acronym stands for Cleveland Akron Swing and Hustle, and the “Bash” is the C.A.S.H club’s annual event that takes place over the American Thanksgiving weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg, Ohio.  We literally take over the hotel, for a weekend of dancing, competitions – the usual – but with complimentary buffet breakfast daily and sit-down holiday-style dinner – this is still a great value event, even with the exchange rate, and only a ~five hour drive from Toronto.
