Interested in Learning to DJ?

Have you ever wondered what it takes to DJ? Maybe you’re just interested in how to keep a dance party going beyond just hitting “play” on a set list, or maybe you’re curious about DJing at the Fed on Thursday nights?

If you’re a full member of the Fed, you can go through our social dance DJ program for free. You’ll be mentored by some of the strongest DJs in the country (more than a couple of our DJs have worked national and international Lindy Hop and Balboa events), and learn their tips and tricks. Plus, you’ll learn about the history of the music that inspired the dance we love and enjoy on a weekly basis.

There’s no obligation to become a DJ, but we’re always looking for new people to put into our rotation!

For more information, fill out the form below and we’ll get you started in our next DJ Flight School!

Syndicate DJ Interest Form

  • Please enter your Spotify or YouTube playlist share link here, or create a set list (between 5 and 10 songs) by adding each song and artist you would consider during one of the hour-long DJ sets. It doesn't have to be perfect, we're just looking for a starting point and an intersection of what we expect when playing for Swing dancers. Alternatively, give us an idea of the events you've DJed in the past!
    Add a new row
  • Observer - you're interested in learning the mechanics and skills of DJing, but you don't want to DJ for the Syndicate.
