Update on our reopening plans

We have postponed our tentative reopening plans. We will not reopen on September 2nd. While we cannot presently announce a definitive reopening date, we will continue to post updates as they become available.

The Austin Swing Syndicate Board has been working for months to bring Thursday night dancing back to the community. Previously, we announced that if Austin reached stage 1, we would reopen in September. Unfortunately, Austin is now in stage 5 COVID-19 restrictions. Under these conditions, we do not feel we can safely hold large, close-contact events on a regular basis.

Our vision for a safe return is one without restrictions. We highly encourage those who can get vaccinated to do so. Hefty breathing and close contact are hallmarks of our hobby. We must work together as a community to create an environment where we can dance with as little risk as possible. Let’s choose to keep each other safe!

Where do I go to learn? How much are the classes?

What are people saying?

“Whether it’s a live band night or just the DJs, the swing syndicate is the best way to spend a Thursday night. It’s a great time for everyone on the swing dance spectrum, from beginner to advanced. The venue is also gorgeous and the hardwood floors are perfect for dancing.”

“The Austin Swing Syndicate and dancing at the Fed may be the funnest thing Austin has to offer and I try to get everyone I know to give it a shot.  The Swing Syndicate is a big winner of the best new things in my life this decade.”

“Just went to swing class here for the first time and really like it. My gf brought me to class and the beginner’s class was perfect for me to feel comfortable getting out of my comfort zone with other novices.”
