    New life has been brought to WindyHop! A new batch of volunteers and contributors are maintaining the site and it has been given a total revamp, front end & back end. So welcome, enjoy, and let this post serve as your introduction to the brand spanking new WindyHop.

    What can you expect to find on the new site?
    • A new "Learn To Dance" page helping those who are new to the dance scene.
    • A new sortable calendar, now with a special listing for B.Y.O.P. dances.
      (Bring Your Own Partner) Not an organized dance
    • A venues page providing you info on dancing hot spots in Chicago
    • A brand new forum. I know what you are thinking, "crap, a new forum, now I need to make a new profile." Don't worry, this new and improved forum allows you to simply log in with your facebook or google account!
    • A new bands page. Chicago has some amazing jazz bands to dance to and the new WindyHop is showing them some love.
    • A new "Get Inspired" page. Check out some sweet videos of the pros, past and present, and learn a little bit more about Lindy Hop and Blues.
    • And last by not least, drum roll please... WindyHop now has a sweet mobile version for your smartphone!

    I think my favorite feature so far is the avatar for the Admin.

    One point of clarification- on the About page, you say WH has been around since 1998. Not quite accurate.

    SwingHomeChicago.com went live in December of 1999. It was changed to Windyhop.org in the spring of 2000.
    I used to run this joint.

Howdy, Stranger!
