INSTRUCTOR: Kelly Casanova
CONTEST: 2019 "Luck of the Draw" Prelim Round I

The Next Generation Swing Dance Club (Next Gen) runs dance contests at most of its monthly Club dances. Most frequently, they are Luck of the Draw (LOD) contests. Typically, the Club runs preliminary rounds for 7 months, culminating with finals. For variety, the Club may also run another kind of contest periodically, such as a Strictly Swing contest.

Our Luck of the DrawJack& Jill is open to all skill levels, and does not have any gender role restrictions!  As Mix and Match contests, dancers sign up as individuals and partnerships are chosen randomly, such as rolling dice, picking cards, or drawing names out of a bucket. Each pairing must demonstrate good social dance skills as they dance to music selected in advance by the DJ, rather than execute a pre-choreographed routine to music of their choice.
