Charlottesville Swing Dance Society

Swing Swap

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, CSDS has decided to cancel all in person dance events through at least the end of February 2021.   CSDS is committed to following all CDC and VDH coronavirus guidelines. We miss dancing and seeing everyone and look forward to when it is safe for us to gather in person.

Check out the many online WCS opportunities at our Dance Resources page.


Swing Swap is the longest running WCS dance practice in Charlottesville. It is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, where all levels are welcome and no partner needed. It’s a great place to meet others in our dance community!

Attendees of all CSDS events are expected to be familiar with and abide by our Code of Conduct.


Our eternal thanks to the Dynamic Duo of Lisa and Kevin, CSDS’ and Charlottesville’s dance ambassadors extraordinaire. They hosted Swing Swap for many years and welcomed dozens of new dancers to CSDS and the greater Charlottesville dance community. Their energy, enthusiasm and love for the dance will be missed.

CSDS is heartbroken over the passing of dancer Lisa Morales. Lisa was a well known and respected guidance counselor at Charlottesville High School as well as a long time CSDS member who, along with her partner Kevin Sumter, hosted Swing Swap and headed up our nominating committee for many years.
