Event Data

This is a simple list of all the events I surveyed to come up with the numbers I used in my statistical pornography post.*

I noticed a couple of interesting things in terms of scheduling.  July is a pretty dead month in terms of big.  There are a few small ones, but Herrang is the 5000 pound gorilla that draws everyone that’s anyone in the community.  Even people who don’t teach there or are too advanced to take classes plan time to be there if only to have the opportunity to hang out.  December is also another slow month until the year end events like Lindy Focus and The Snowball.

I was a little surprised to discover that November is a pretty slow month.  Sure there are some good sized exchanges, but relatively very few big workshop events in the entire world.  That will change this year with the Catalina Jazz Dance Festival.  Just looking at the calendar it would seem like a smart scheduling move, but they may also find out the hard way why November is such a  lean month in terms of events.

*It amuses me to use the word “pornography” in relation to Lindy Hop if only to up the number of hits on the blog. Plan on seeing it a lot.
