Please read division definitions underneath the division. In keeping with the spirit of the Swing Era. ALHC asks competitors not to wear jeans or sweat clothes while competing. Instead please wear clothes that are within the spirit of what original swing dancers wore. That does not mean that you need to wear a zoot suit or anything else vintage. Please come on the floor dresses neatly, not in jeans or sweats. All contests close one hour before each day's Competitors' Meeting.
