Modern Values

 While we celebrate the music, dances, and cocktails originating in the 1920-1950's we must also acknowledge that these eras were also fraught with injustice and persecution of people, many of whom were the leading innovators of the music and dances we celebrate. We strive to appreciate their contribution to American culture while recognizing, not justifying, the oppression and racial tensions that existed at that time. Camp Swing is inclusive of people of all gender identities, races.
