The first Seattle Lindy Exchange was in October of 1999. As one of the early swing dancing events in the country, Seattle helped reinforce the format of what an lindy exchange would be. The concept of the exchange relies upon the idea of hosting out-of-town dancers and musicians to come to a host city and just do what they do, dance and play music. No classes, no competitions... just lots of live music and social dancing, meeting new people from across the globe. At the Seattle Lindy Exchange musicians are the special guests, and the bands formed for the exchange this year (and in recent years) reflect the quality of swinging musical talent from Seattle, and brings in musical friends from other jazz hot spots to get in the groove.
