We’re incredibly lucky. Austin is one of the best cities to live in as a swing dancer. There are a lot of great venues to dance at and bands to dance to around the city. Below are some resources for finding the hotspots as well as links to some of our favorite venues and bands.

Four on the Floor’s Facebook Page is a great resource for finding out what’s going on in the Austin swing scene on a weekly basis. Subscribe to their email list to always be in the know!

Two other great places to learn about what is happening in the Austin swing scene is through the Austin Swing Syndicate’s Facebook Page and Facebook Group and the Austin Swing Dancers Facebook Page. Both the organization and members of our scene will post opportunities to dance around Austin on Facebook.

Check out our brand new calendar courtesy of Austin Swing Dancers. Never miss an event by following Austin Swing Dancers on Facebook, Instagram, or Google Calendar
