Themes: The overarching theme for Airedale Swing Dance Festival is colour but the "Dress Codes" are all optional so please feel free to wear anything that makes you feel comfortable to dance

Friday evening = Welcome Dance in  "Team Colours" - wear a t-shirt or something else to represent your local dance scene/group/club etc or if you come from more of a "Vintage" dance scene wear something colourful to represent that, even wear your favourite sports team colours if you prefer

Saturday Afternoon = Tea Dance in Green (Swing For Macmillan)  - wear something Green as we do some fundraising with a raffle/collection & cake! (Airedale Swing Dance Community have supported various local & national charitable causes including Macmillan Cancer Support with a series of our Swing For Macmillan Tea Dances generating over £4000 for this fantastic charity to date)

Saturday Evening = Party in Blue- wear something Blue to party with Alligator Gumbo as we intend to finish the evening off with some late night Slow Swing & Blues music to wind down with after the main party

Sunday Afternoon = Tea Dance in Red - wear something Red at our farewell tea dance but in any case come prepared eat cake as baking contributions are usually plentiful at Airedale Swing Dance Community Tea Dance events
