New this season, SwingShift and the Stars will be live at the Grand Traverse Event Center on Garfield Ave. for 4 intimate nighttime events! While keeping alive the wonderful elements of learning, performing, and competing that our audiences love, we’re also focused on safety with new additions like contactless ticketing, donating and voting.

Tickets are available exclusively through the participating nonprofits.

Also, new and exciting this season, will be SwingShift and the Stars: Beyond the Competition, sponsored by Bill & Susie Janis! It’s a professionally produced, virtual, sneak peek backstage and in rehearsals for fun and even a few mishaps!! You can view, donate and vote by watching Beyond the Competition on your own screen. You’ll have a dozen opportunities to view this backstage craziness, October thru December! Start planning your “watch party”!!! Beginning October 1, 2, 3 and October 22, 23 and 24 with our Ballroom Dance competition and the Lip Sync Battle virtual performances will be aired on November 19, 20, 21 and December 3, 4, and 5. Go to to watch, vote and donate from your favorite screen.

"Covid has taken its toll and our local nonprofit organizations are busier now than ever striving to meet the needs of our community. They need all of our help. Join SwingShift and the Stars, and let’s build up these hard-working nonprofits!” says creator Judy Harrison.

Also NEW & exciting: This season will wrap up on Dec 10th with the SwingShift and the Stars, Christmas Round-up, sponsored by America’s Carpet Barn. We invite small businesses to celebrate the season of giving in a very tangible way; helping our 3 nonprofits “round-up” their totals! It will be a fun evening where our nonprofits themselves will be serving dinner and ReBooted featuring Judy Harrison will entertain and pack the dance floor!
