The information on this page is provided mostly by the local venues, bands,
and dancers. This webpage is part of a larger website run by someone who
is focused on swing dancing in Boston, Massachusetts and this page
is provided as a convenience to readers who might be interested
in looking for possible dance venues in Ohio. However, I do
not live there and can't personally confirm every venue and their events. With that in
mind, I suggest calling up the dance venues to confirm their dance
events. Please write to
firstname.lastname@example.org with any new information that you'd like
to share. Review this website's
publishing policies and
information format guidelines
before sending any information in.
