February 10-12, 2012. Bubble City Bash 2012 was the spring workshop for the Illini Swing Society, our local swing dancing club in Champaign-Urbana, featuring instruction from internationally known Lindy Hoppers Mike Roberts and Laura Glaess.

As the workshop chair for the Illini Swing Society, I was the main organizer for this event. Approximately 50-100 people attend each weekend, coming from the Champaign-Urbana community, and from all over the Midwest.

My organizing duties included designing the goals and feel of the workshop, booking venues, choosing, contacting, and taking care of the instructors for the weekend, doing the same for the live band, planning contracts for instructors, the band, and DJs, planning the schedule, helping create the website, advertising, and running the weekend itself.
