Swingin' at the Savoy 2019 Scholarship Application
Swingin’ at the Savoy is an annual event held at Oakland’s historic Lake Merritt Dance Center (Veteran's Memorial Building) that celebrates the history of Lindy Hop and swing jazz, styles of dance and music that originated in and were popularized by African-American communities in the 1930s and 1940s. We would like to invite our local community to join us in this unique opportunity to take dance classes from internationally-renowned instructors, listen to live music performed by some of the most talented musicians alive today, and meet some of the people who helped keep the dance alive through the years--including Norma Miller, one of the original inventors of Lindy Hop, Chazz Young, and Chester Whitmore.

We are offering multiple full scholarships for dancers of all experience levels (including no experience) and dance passes for Swingin’ at the Savoy 2019, which takes place from February 22 to February 24, for those who would otherwise be unable to attend due to the cost of admission. We especially encourage applications from East Bay residents and people of color, but the application is also open to all interested members of our community.
