The purpose of the Falcon Swing Society is to provide Bowling Green State University students, faculty, staff and members of the Bowling Green community with instruction in and exposure to the various forms of American Vernacular dance, specifically swing dance. Falcon Swing does this by offering lessons and workshops, organizing social dances, providing instruction on DJ’ing for swing and blues dancing, putting on the Falcon Lindy Extravaganza (FLEX) and providing opportunities to head to outside exchanges.
Since 2010, Falcon Swing has been hosting a weekend dance event, bringing in dancers from across the country. The scale and popularity of this event has been increasing from year to year. By creating a free event for BGSU students, faculty and staff, we will be able to better meet our goals of sharing American Vernacular dance with the BGSU community.
Additionally, Falcon Swing would like to raise funds for students to attend exchanges across the Midwest. Students have always had to attend outside events on their own dime, making it so that very few students can regularly attend these exchanges. By raising funds, we will be able to send students who otherwise would not be able to attend events outside of Bowling Green.
Hosting an amazing Falcon Lindy Extravaganza and sending students to outside events gives BGSU a strong level of representation across the United States and increases our chances of bringing in better teachers to BGSU in future years. Your gift helps the entire club create an event of a lifetime and create memories that will last well beyond our four years at BG. Your contribution will help us offset the costs of transportation, registration fees, housing, meals and instructor fees. We cannot thank you enough for the help and will continue to impress across the Midwest!
Swinging Falcon Hard Since 2010!
