The Lone Star Championships

Since day one, the Lone Star Championships has been a social-dance-competition weekend, focusing solely on improvised, non-choreography competitions. We did that so, one, we could have our event be a showcase of amazingly talented social dancers, and two because we want you spending your precious time having fun! We are holding ourselves to those same rules for this year’s competitions.

Swing Dance Battle

How versatile are you? Can you kill it fast and slow? Well this may be your comp.

This year we are doing something special, our SWING DANCE BATTLE. There is only one level. You and a partner will dance in three preliminary rounds to different tempos: one slow, one mid-tempo, and one fast. Any-swing-goes for each round. The judges scores from all three rounds will be combined together and the top overall dancers will be selected for the finals!

Get ready, this is gonna be great!
