Hey everyone! Join us for a special evening on August 7th, as the Austin Swing Syndicate celebrates its 15th Anniversary! We have a lot of great things in store for our attendees. We’ve booked one of the best jazz bands in Austin, Thrift Set Orchestra to help us celebrate 15 years. We have some other surprises lined up. So come out and dance!
If it’s your first time visiting the Austin Swing Syndicate or your Eight-Hundredth time visiting us, we want to make sure our anniversary dance has something for EVERYONE. If it is your first time visiting, don’t worry we have beginner swing classes starting at 8:15pm that’ll make sure you’ll be ready to dance when the band starts. And if you’re a regular member we have something special for you too! (read below)
It’s amazing how fast time has passed since we first started back in 1999. Austin Swing Syndicate was created so that swing dancers could have a regular venue to dance and have an organization that would help foster and grow our dance scene. Back then we were lucky to break 100 people in attendance, and now we have over 300 people weekly. This would not have happened without our loyal members (and non-members) attending and spreading the word! To celebrate we will have Thrift Set Orchestra play for us. If you haven’t heard them yet, check them out here:
In addition to a fantastic band, we’ll have a photobooth courtesy of BoothEasy.com. We’ve had a photobooth before, and our dancers loved it. Don’t forget to get your pictures taken before you leave.
What works well with a photobooth? Balloon animals. Well specifically, a talented Balloon Artist that can twist and create almost anything you can think of. Come check out Nate the Great, one of the best balloon artists in town! And afterwards, take your balloon creation to the photobooth for some pictures.
Seems like there’s a lot to do? That’s because there is. Besides all the extra stuff, there will be a lot of dancing. And to make sure you’re refreshed and able to dance the whole night, we’ll also have some snacks and drinks for you. Also, we’ll have a special surprise for our members so make sure to come out and bring your membership cards (if you’re not a member, you can join that night).
