COMPETITIONS

We are excited to announce that there will be two competitions this year at the Bull City Swingout

76 years after the “Jitterbug Contest” that was advertised in the Carolina Times we are bringing a competition back to the Durham Armory. On Saturday at the main dance we will have finals for our Jitterbug Competition, a mix and match competition where partners are randomly assigned. This is our formal competition, with $10 fee entry , prelims round, professional judges, and passes to future events as prizes.

At the Late Night Dance we are reviving a slightly newer tradition by bringing back “The Fastest Feet in Durham” a free to enter, any-swing-goes throw down.  The music gets faster until you can’t keep up and get tapped out.  The reward? Epic bragging rights! (Along with sweet swag and other unnamed extras!)
