The Palm Springs Swing & Mix 2017 Organizing Committee, hereinafter referred to as PS S&M 2017, is excited to welcome you to the 34th annual IAGSDC square dance convention here in beautiful Palm Springs, California. Our working motto is, “Everything you expect at an IAGSDC convention – with a twist !” We promise you an incredible convention with all your favorite features and a few surprises we know you will love. Palm Springs Swing & Mix 2017 could very well be the “hottest” time you’ll ever have at a square dance convention !

Our convention is endorsed by the two local clubs, Boots In Squares and Windmill Twirlers. We look forward to working with the LGBTQ* dance community and our straight friends and dance buddies to create a welcoming event for all who seek to dance together at this desert oasis.

Our Host hotel, the Renaissance Palm Springs is sold out for the 3 prime nights of convention. Our Overflow hotel, the Hilton Palm Springs is located one block away and offers the same hotel room rates. Click here for more information on the Hilton for NEW RESERVATIONS, as well as contact info for the Renaissance for EXISTING RESERVATIONS.
