Thanks to shows such as Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, swing dancing is surging in popularity. Sugar Ridge, on the Caribbean island of Antigua, is offering a chance to demonstrate your best jitterbug, foxtrot, swing, and shag moves and also learn new ones.

The Sugar Ridge Swing Fest, Oct. 21-28, includes seven nights lodging, daily breakfast, welcome reception with a steel drum band, meet the band luncheon, lessons with professional dancer Jonas Bielkevicius, five live big band shows, two open mic nights, and a grand swing dance contest with prizes. Also included are airport transfers, welcome bag, and a commemorative photographic CD. Price for the Sugar Dance Swing Fest is $1,250 per person, based on double occupancy.
