Weekly Dance and Beginner Lessons

The Austin Swing Syndicate meets every Thursday from 8 PM - Midnight to swing dance and have a good time! We meet at The Texas Federation of Women's Clubs (aka The Fed) in West Campus.

Entry to the dance is $6 for non-members and $3 for members. Membership can be purchased with entry at the front desk and is valid for one year from purchase date. Membership dues are $20 for students with a valid student ID and $30 for adults.

Each week we teach an Intro to Swing lesson for those new to swing dancing. It is free with your entry cost and begins at 8:15 pm. No partner is required for this lesson. We rotate leads and follows during the class so that you can make plenty of friends before hitting the dance floor!

Additionally, we also teach another beginner class on Thursdays at 8:15 pm which is on a 4-week rotation. These classes are also geared toward complete beginners, just for different types of dances that fall under or are related to the swing dance genre. The rotation is as follows:

Week 1: Intro to Blues

Week 2: Intro to Balboa

Week 3: Intro to West Coast Swing

Week 4: Intro to Collegiate Shag

We hope you'll join us sometime! For more information, visit www.austinswingsyndicate.org

      Hi Manish! Glad you're coming out tonight! We meet at the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs (we call it "The Fed" for short - address is 2312 San Gabriel in West Campus). You can park across the street at Freewheeling Bicycles. We're contracted to use their parking lot after 7 PM on Thursdays. Since you haven't done any swing dancing before, I highly recommend attending our beginner lesson, which starts at 8:15. You don't need to bring a partner if you don't want to, we rotate during the class so you'll get to meet a lot of people! Also, you're in for a special treat tonight as we'll have a live band in our "Side Room," which is our second smaller room for dancing. It's going to be fun!

      Sweet! Thanks for the prompt response and the welcome :). The meetup says 8 and you said the beginner lesson starts at 8:15? Did you mean to say 7:15? Also, I'm meeting some friends at BlackFinn at the domain earlier and so may or may not have a partner. See you guys tonight
