VSO has been a tradition for nearly two decades in the Washington, DC Area. Started by Craig Hutchinson, this event has always been flavored with a variety of Swing styles. Lindy Hop, West Coast, Shag, Hustle, and Hand Dance have always had a home at VSO. Last year event organizers Barry Durand and Jane Ford took over management of VSO and the event was one of the best Lindy versus Westie events ever.
VSO is back and running strong at a new hotel - the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport which has excellent space, easy access, and for those flying in, its right near the airport! This year VSO is being run by Barry Durand, and Jane Ford.
