David Patrone Productions and Viejas Casino is hosting a swing dancing competition with $10,000 up for grabs for the next few Sundays. Couples may compete in any number of nine weekly qualifying rounds in order to advance to the semi-final round held on March 21st, according to the event Web site.
The first place couple will take home $5,000. The second and third place couples will win $3,000 and $2,000 respectively.
