Camp Hollywood XXI - August 31st - September 3rd, 2018

Camp Hollywood is one of the largest and longest running swing dance camps in the world. Now in its 20th year, we're proud to offer the finest selection of international dance instructors, live music and competitors which provide a fun-filled long weekend with something for everyone! We offer classes in Lindy Hop, Shag, Balboa, and various swing line dances in levels from Beginner to Advanced, dance contests for all levels, afterhours dancing, live music jams all over the hotel, and lots of spontaneous shenanigans!

 

Thanks, everyone, for an amazing Camp Hollywood XX! Registration for next year will be open Feb 1st!

Hollywood Cards are here! Amazing artist, dancer and instructor Mickey Fortanasce has created a special limited run of playing cards featuring some of his favorite dancers from the West Coast, including Hal Takier, Jean Veloz, Jewel McGowan and more! The Swing Legends II - Hollywood Deck will be available at our merchandise table throughout the weekend - only a few more will be made after Camp Hollywood so this may be your only chance to pick up a set! AND -

We're delighted to announce that the proceeds from these cards AND $5 for every Camp Hollywood 20 jacket sold this year will be donated to the following terrific organizations:

Black Lindy Hop Matters -

Based in Baltimore, Black Lindy Hop Matters is an international organization which advocates for the honor of African American culture. We work to build welcoming communities and advancement opportunities for black dancers, and advocate for cultural integrity, recognition and respect for African American people and our heritage.

The Burrito Project -

Our friend and long time dancer Alan Pinel has been a part of this organization since 2009:

My name is Alan Pinel and in 1993 I took my first dance class. I fell in love with swing dancing and it's been a part of my life ever since. I was thrilled to attend the 1st Camp Hollywood and I'm excited to dance and celebrate Camp Hollywood XX. I enjoy helping people. In 2009 I partnered with a group of friends and we started a local burrito project based in South Pasadena. We have served over 100,000 burritos to the hungry living on Skid Row and we look forward to sharing many more. The Burrito Project is a group of really AMAZING people (like YOU) who get together & make burritos. We make 1,000 burritos every 3rd Thursday of the month and distribute blankets, food, bottled water and hygiene kits to the needy living on Skid Row, Downtown Los Angeles.
