Artspectrum has a long and distinguished record of accomplishment. At its inception Artspectrum was created with three divisions - theater/dance, music and film production with goals to produce, present, develop and educate our constituents.
A commission to choreograph a contemporary dance work to swing music led to our introduction to swing dance.. We introduced Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing and Chicago Stepping workshops to the metro Detroit area in the winter of 1996. In 1998 we presented the first of its kind “American Lindy Hop Championships” (ALHC). Other workshops and dance weekends followed and continue today. ALHC is going into its 16th year. A world-wide swing/Lindy Hop community now exists from Moscow to Korea.
The American Lindy Hop Championships is now in its third year of production in Chicago, Il where we have a satellite office. It was first produced in Great Gorge, NJ and spent several years in Stamford, CT.
Our newest iniative is "Swing Dance: History, Technique, Performance." SDHTP is a program available to schools, club and community group. It mentors and trains students in swing technique while giving them an historical context. Thid up to 20-week residency culminates in a performance.
