Portland Lindy Exchange 2016, May 6th-8th!

Thank you for attending the 2016 Portland Lindy Exchange!

Hello Dancers!

Now that the dust has settled from the 2016 Portland Lindy Exchange and we’ve recovered, the Portland Lindy Society board would like to THANK YOU for attending!

This event isn’t possible without our wonderful coordinators – Rodney Young for booking the bands, Paulus van der Salm for food, Kimberly Hathaway for housing, and Mindy Barnhart for rounding up Gene Yoo‘s goon squad er, volunteers! Of course we want to thank everyone who volunteered at the Exchange and wanted to give a few special shoutouts to some folks: Robert Umali Evans and Julia Box for organizing the process of picking up, assembling and tearing down the portable floor used at Director Park, Sam Barnhart for photography and Sandra J. Childs and Moriah Kimmer for stepping up when we needed extra hands.

In addition to the volunteers, we want thank our Emcee Pace Rubadeau as well as the DJs and teachers who worked during the weekend: Jessica Shaffer from Denver, Melissa Roane aka “Sugarfoot”, Josh McLaughlin, Emily Ernst,Jared Stensland, Becca Moreno, Sam Estrem, YoungWoo Joh (Woo) and Maayan “Mo” Dagan.

In the coming weeks we’ll be sending out a survey, so be on the lookout for that. Lastly, we’ve already begun planning for 2017!! We’ll let you know when we have dates, venues and bands locked in.

We hope you had fun this year, we can’t wait until next year and again, thank you for attending and making this event happen. Remember to swing-on and swing-out.
