Q: How do I get to and from the airport if my host/hostess cannot pick me up?
A: Seattle has a light rail system called LINK. There is one line from SEA/TAC Airport into downtown Seattle. Seattle Metro bus system has lines from the light rail.
Q: What other dance(s) are happening if I’m coming a couple of days early or staying a couple of days past the exchange??
A: Great question! Seattle is a fantastic city for social dancing as we have swing dancing almost every night of the week! Check out Facebook.
Savoy Swing Club Calendar has a decent listing of swing dancing in Seattle.
Q: Are the venues for the exchange within walking distance of each other?
A: Not really, though we wish. We recommend having car or bus arrangements made, or take advantage of sharing a cheap cab ride.
Q: When will we hear about hosting assignments?
A: Hosts and guests will be assigned during the registration period and notified a couple of weeks prior to the event. Please update your registration with any information you wish acknowledged.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: There will be no refunds. Early registration ensures a lower price, but asks that you commit to the purchase. For those paying with a payment plan through PayPal, if you cannot attend the event, your ticket must be paid in full in order to be valid - you cannot sell or give a ticket not paid in full to someone else.
Q: Will there be food at late-night, or do I need to go and find something?
A: Yes! We will have food/snacks at After Hours dances.
Q: Can I bring water bottles into the dances?
A: Yes! All of the dances, with the exception of the Sunday night dance at the Century Ballroom, allow water bottles. For Sunday night, we suggest the public facilities or visiting the Century Ballroom’s restaurant next door, The Tin Table where you can either purchase a non-alcoholic beverage and bring it into the dance, or enjoy cocktails in the bar area before hitting the floor.
