Thank you Pauldances and The GLobal Online social

On August 27, 2021, the Global Online Social is a benefit for Pacific Swing Dance Foundation! Join in on Zoom or Twitch and help us raise money for the PSDF Scholarship Fund.

The PSDF Scholarship Fund is committed to creating opportunities for a diverse array of dancers to attend dance events on the Pacific coast. For many dancers around the United States and world—especially younger dancers—traveling to the Pacific coast to dance is financially unattainable. But with contributions from dancers with the financial resources, we’ve awarded over 120 full- and partial- scholarships since 2019. 


Announcing LIVING HISTORY: SYLVIA SYKES

Help the PSDF Archive raise money to collect and preserve history. Today we announced a project to collect a complete oral history from Sylvia Sykes. Help support that effort and the wider effort of the Pacific Swing Dance Archive!
