What we're about

We've recently changed the name of the group to Country Western Music and Dance. It was Country Western Dance Meet Up but due to Covid there isn't much opportunity for dancing, so for the time being we'll have to kick back and enjoy the music. There will be people dancing at many of our events. but the tendency is that most folks are only dancing with their close friends or partner that they are out with for the evening.

The objective of the group is to meet and dance Country Western with local Austin dancers of all shapes, sizes, spots and stripes. Including but not limited to Two Step, Country Waltz, Triple Two Step, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Polka, Country Swing, Hokey Pokey, Cha-Cha, and Jitterbug.

All experience levels are encouraged to join and come out. Some of our outings will have beginner dance lesson. We will also have a directory for private lesson for for those who want to learn a few more steps. Our outings will be at various venues in Austin such as The Broken Spoke, The Little Longhorn, The White Horse, Mercer Street Dance Hall, Mavericks, Wild West, etc.

PROFILE PHOTOs THAT SHOW YOUR FACE ARE REQUIRED. We can't meet you at an event if we don't know what you look like.

See the Rules page for more group guidelines.
