Mavericks North Social Dance Party, Every Wednesday Night

Needs a location

Come to Mavericks North for the weekly country and swing dance party. It's every Wednesday night from 7-9. This dance party has been going on every Wednesday at Mavericks since 2012, making it the longest running free social dance in Austin! There's no cover charge, and lots of friendly people to dance with!

This is not an official meetup, so there won't be a sign or name tags or anything like that. It’s a “social dance”, which means people will ask you to dance, and you are encouraged to ask anyone you’d like to dance with. You don’t have to bring a partner, but obviously you're welcome to bring whomever you want. When you walk in you’ll see that the majority of people are sitting on one side of the club. Sit on that side so that others will know you want to dance. Don't be shy. Introduce yourself to others and let them know you're there to dance!

All levels of dancers are welcome. The dance styles we do here are primarily two step, triple two and west coast swing, with a smattering of east coast swing, jitterbug, hustle, waltz, cha cha, polka, and night club two step.
