Workshops are a great place to improve your dance. Typically, more widely recognized quality instructors are brought in to teach classes. Watching these people dance to the music can help you understand what swing is all about. If you're looking for additional help, it is common for these instructors to give private lessons during workshops.

Workshops typically attract people that are interested in getting better. These people are typically more skilled and that only makes for more fun during the evening dances.

Given that a workshop is very expensive, more emphasis is placed on playing better music so it's common for extra work to be put in to selecting DJs and by the DJ's themselves to make the dances fun.

Given all of these things, workshops can be the pentacle of existence for some dancers and we recommend you try one out. There is a pretty exhaustive listing of events on swing out of town. Here's a narrower list if you need help narrowing it down.

It's common for a workshop to have a competition or two. There are many different types of competitions and each one has a different format. These competitions can help motivate you to get better.
