Dancing at DSDS
The Dallas Swing Dance Society hosts the Saturday "Swing on a String" dances. Each dance starts with an 8pm newcomer lesson and includes DJ or band music through midnight.
Dancers who have conquered the beginner lesson are invited to our mini-workshops at 6:00pm (all-levels), 7:00pm (intermediate), and
8:00pm (advanced). These class series are progressive in nature, so we request that dancers commit to coming to each class in the
Facebook events, and the DSDS emails to see what classes are upcoming! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask one of
Other fun swing dance venues in DFW:
The Sons of Hermann dance is every Wednesday at 8PM. This dance takes place in Deep Ellum and follows a similar format to DSDS. The Intermediate "Beginner Plus" lesson is at 8PM, at the same time as the newcomer lesson (in the old bowling alley downstairs). The dance then runs through midnight. There's also a Karaoke DJ in the bar, so on their website it's called "Sing and Swing."
There are two different swing dance groups in Fort Worth: SSPH on Tuesdays and FWSDS on Thursdays. Please click on their respective website links for more information.
The only Dallas dance studio offering Lindy Hop is The Rhythm Room. Their swing dance lessons are generally held on Mondays and Wednesdays, though there can be events on other days, too. The Rhythm Room is on Lower Greenville Ave, and is an excellent way to learn Swing Dancing with dance studio style progressive classes.
Denton Swing and the Longview Swing Dance Soceiety (LSDA) host events in their respective areas.
