Summer Swing & Hustle Dance Classic
“A Musical-Tropical Paradise”

August 16 – 19, 2018

Dancers! This year we are excited to add Hustle to the mix and that means Summer Swing is even better! We invite you to join us at the beautiful Riviera Resort Hotel in the heart of Palm Springs and gather with friends around a passion for learning and dancing. Come and enjoy the many things this event has to offer. The local attractions, sunny skies, oasis style pool, and friendly staff makes it a wonderful vacation destination. We like to refer to Summer Swing & Hustle as a DANCECATION!
