Say What??? We’re Starting a Swing Dance Flash Mob Team!

Written by Dominique Vyborny on . Posted in Blog

We are starting a Flash Mob. Not quite like this, it'll have more swing outs and such in it vs Michael Jackson. :)

The flash mob we want will have less Michael Jackson Poses and more Swing Outs. 🙂



Oh, hi, hey there! I wanted to share something really exciting with you. Many people over the years have mentioned that it would be super fun to do a Swing Dance Flash Mob in Austin, but the idea has been really intangible, somewhat ethereal, shrouded in mystery , almost metaphysical… There were unanswerable questions, like… How do we start a flash mob??? What do we need to do to make it happen? Would anyone even show up for practices?

Luckily, I’m here to help answer these questions! My name is Dominique, and I’m one of the Austin Swing Syndicate’s brand new At-Large board members. My favorite pet-project possibility during elections was a desire to help start a Swing Dance Flash Mob Team in Austin, or at least get the ball rolling until our members will be able to keep it afloat on their own! And so we’re going to be making it happen, starting on Thursday April 11th! At the Fed! From 8:45-9:45 in the Art Gallery!

Rollerskating on Tuesday, April 2nd

Written by Lindsay Chronister on . Posted in Blog

Rollerskating with the Austin Swing Syndicate Part of our continued initiatives this year as a board is to create events where our members can mingle and get to know each other. Too often our conversations go like this:

A Person: Hey, wanna dance?

Another Person: Sure!

A Person: What’s your name (again)? >.<

Another Person: I’m Another Person, what’s your name?

A Person: I’m A Person.

…dance, dance, dance…

Another Person: Well, thanks for the dance, it was fun!

A Person: Thanks, it was.

And we think that works for us pretty well, except it’s TOTALLY LAME for developing community and making real friends, and pretty much every person needs community and real friends, dancers included.

Now you may be saying, “Hey! I do have real friends, don’t be stupid!” Ok, most of you probably do, but who doesn’t want MORE?!?!
