Welcome to Palm Springs Swing & Mix!

30 June - 3 July, 2017

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.

The Renaissance Hotel Reservation link is now available!! So go directly to our Renaissance Convention Reservation Link and get your reservation completed sooner than later . . . room choices are limited.

Regarding heat…our convention will be held at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel contiguous with the Palm Springs Convention Center. You will never have to leave the air conditioned premises unless you want to.
