Our Story

A little history of the US Open Swing Dance Championships – it was founded in 1983 by Jack Bridges. Jack Bridges, now deceased, had a passion for swing dancing. His purpose behind the US Open Swing Dance Championships was to run an “Open” Swing Dance Event. Open to any style of Swing Dancing that is being danced anywhere in the World. You will witness swing dance styles in West Coast Swing, Lindy, East Coast Swing, Carolina S**g, and Hand Dancing to mention a few. It is held over the United States Thanksgiving weekend. Activities start as early as Wednesday night, with the ceremonial Opening Ceremony on Friday. Competitions start on Thursday and carry on throughout Saturday and Sunday.

Jack united the swing dancing community with that passion and purpose in mind. Held at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim California for 16 years, Jack, later joined by wife, Mary Ann successfully ran the US Open Swing Dance Championships for 18 years. The Bridges, earning their right to retire, sold the event in 2000.

In 2000 the US Open Swing Dance Championships was purchased by a group of twelve (12). Our US Open shareholders are highly dedicated and committed to continuing the dream and the passion of this wonderful event and honoring its rich history while maintaining its wonderful traditions. The US Open Swing Dance Championships today is run by a voting Board of Directors who works to bring you, the dancers, the best event possible.

The US Open Swing Dance Championships now held at the beautiful Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport hotel, awards over $50,000 in cash and prizes. It has the privilege of being a founding member of the National Association of Swing Dance Events (NASDE), and a member of the World Swing Dance Council (WSDC). The final tour stop, with year-end prize money, is awarded at the US Open Swing Dance Championships, the NASDE tour, the Master’s Tour, the Young Adult Swing Dance Association (YASDA). The World Swing Dance Council announces their annual inductees into their Hall of Fame on Saturday and the US Open Swing Dance Championships inducts another US Open supporter into their Walk of Legends.
