Community

Participating in a huge dance event like the New Orleans Swing Dance Festival can be daunting – especially in a city as rich with possibility as New Orleans. Whether you’re an experienced dancer visiting from across the world, or a local taking your first (dance) steps, our Community Ambassadors are here to make you feel at home.

If you’re not sure where to start at the Festival, find an Ambassador. We’d love it if you asked us for a dance. But we’re also here to tell you about the best po’boy in town, the happy hour special you can’t miss, the best walking route from A to B, and where to find our live, local music. We’re rolling out the red carpet for you – we love this city, we love to dance, and we want to share them both with you.

Look for designated Ambassadors on the dance floor or find them at the Crescent City Swing Information Booth at Ace Hotel New Orleans outside Barnett Hall.
