Swing on by the Burbank Convention Center this November for the Flagship International Championship in this exciting genre of dance!
Many celebrate Thanksgiving by running in their local Turkey Trot, an annual charitable race that burns off enough calories to indulge in the feast ahead “guilt-free”. This year, may we suggest another type of “trot” with your turkey? On Wednesday, November 21 through Sunday, November 25, the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel is proud to host the 2018 US Open Swing Dance Championships, where more competitors of every age and style come to perform than any other event across the globe!
“It Don’t Mean a Thing, If It Ain’t Got That Swing!”
Whether you are competing in one of the thirty divisions or just wish to be a spectator offering support, the Burbank Convention Center is the place to be! With over 6,000 square-feet of premium dance floor, secondary ballrooms at the Center and our Hotel for workshops and practices, and terraced seating to ensure you can catch every move, The Open promises to make its 36th year one of the best.
Some highlights will include…
- Daily open social dancing events
- Workshops teaching basics or different variations to novices and professionals alike
- Hall of Fame and the Walk of Legends Award Presentation, honoring those whose “legendary” contributions have made the US Open Swing Dance Competition the prestigious event it is today.
Ready to be crowned US OPEN CHAMPION!?!
We know this prestigious title may be just as much of a dream as winning a Mirror-ball Trophy on a certain television show, but you will feel every bit the champ when you stay with us at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel for the event. Located near the Hollywood Burbank Airport for those flying in from the 27 countries represented at The Open, our convenience complements our comfort to ensure your weekend is a swinging success!
