The Heartland Swing Festival featuring the Collegiate Jitterbug Championships has become one of the largest and most well-attended Swing events in the region and has proven to be the best opportunity to expose Iowans to the Swing culture. Our swing dance weekend features some of the world’s finest instructors and the region’s most exciting swing bands!
Through classes, dances, and competitions we hope to continue to promote the swing dance scene in Iowa and throughout the Midwest. Please join us in April and experience the joy of swing dancing in central Iowa.
We are excited to welcome dancers back to Des Moines and we’re excited to share our love of lindy hop with the national swing dance community.
The Heartland Swing Festival would like to thank all the sponsors who made generous donations to this year’s event. It is your continued support that makes this event so memorable and exciting.
