Before every Thursday dance, the Austin Swing Syndicate holds three one-hour beginning swing dance lessons at 8:15 PM, which are included with your admission!

The Main Ballroom

If you’ve never gone swing dancing before or just want a little refresher, this lesson is made just for you! We’ll teach you the basic step of East Coast Swing and a few fun moves to get you out on the dance floor and having a great time.

Don’t worry if you have two left feet. Our instructors make it easy to learn, and most importantly, they make it fun! You don’t need to worry about bringing a partner either, we’ll be rotating partners in class.

The Side Rooms

Various forms of swing dances and related dances are taught and danced in our side rooms. After the lessons in the Georgian Room, music that easily lends itself to the practice of that dance is played throughout the evening.
