FAQ



Will tickets for individual dances be sold in advance?

We will be offering a Saturday night-only pass for the Saturday Dance featuring Gordon Webster Band.  Our events have been selling out, so get your pass now to guarantee admission.


Will tickets be sold at the door?

A limited number of tickets will be available at the door on a first come, first serve basis. If you have not purchased advanced tickets, be sure to arrive early to purchase your ticket!


Why aren't tickets available for individual dances in advance?

We give first priority to dancers who are attending the whole event. Part of the experience of an Exchange is dancing all day and all night for 3 or 4 days straight and getting to know everyone. That said, we realize that not everyone wants to or can do that. If you can only attend one dance, we recommend coming to Saturday night's extended dance. We also run a weekly Friday night dance and have many great bands throughout the Fall. If you cannot attend this week, we hope you come and join us on another week.


How can I get to the venues?

Most venues are T or bus accessible, including the outdoor dance. Yay! Please visit the venue page for more information.


I am from out of town. Is there housing? How does this work?

In order for us to place you with a host, you are required to purchase a weekend pass. Hosting is for weekend attendees first. Fill out the registration form here . We will be assigning home stays beginning 3-4 weeks prior to the event.


Where can I eat?

This being Boston, there are many great places to eat! We have listed some recommended restaurants on the venue page that are in proximity of each venue. If you're up for a culinary adventure, please email us or ask us at the Exchange. We'll be happy to suggest something that will delight your palate, expand your horizons or fit a tight time schedule. Also we recommend using Yelp as the reviews will help steer you in the right direction.

ALSO: BSC will provide plenty of food at the late nights!


Are their volunteer slots available?

Yes, although we fill up volunteer slots very quickly. Volunteers with passes will get preference. We will refund part of your pass for volunteering and you will receive a discounted rate on the exchange. Please email volunteer@bostonswingcentral.org for availability.
