Freewheeling Parking is Going Away

Written by Austin Swing Syndicate on . Posted in Announcements, Blog

FreeWheeling is Closing so do NOT Park There

Freewheeling Bicycles and their parking lot will soon be no more. Starting in May, we are no longer under contract to use their lot on Thursday evenings and soon the space will be torn up and development will begin to turn it into something else. Which means this Thursday, May 2nd, do NOT park at Freewheeling. The lot will not be open and free to us and there will be a valet service that will be monitoring the lot and charging for parking. However, we will have parking still just at a garage now!

6th Annual Swing Central Tradition Continues

Written by Austin Swing Syndicate on . Posted in Blog

6th Annual Swing Central at Central Market - Swing Dancing Competition We’re so excited to announce our 6th year of collaborating with Central Market to put on a local swing dance competition.

ALL LEVELS are welcome to compete, and we highly encourage it! This is a great opportunity to get a taste of competing before the Lone Star Championships at Lindyfest in mid-March!

The Swing Central contest is a Jack-and-Jill format. What’s a Jack-and-Jill, you say? The format includes 2 parts, prelims and finals. During prelims, contestants are randomly paired into couples and judged individually. Usually they rotate and each individual gets 3 different dance partners during prelims. Then once finalists are announced, couples are again randomly chosen, but are then judged as a couple.
