Fundraiser Ball!! Scheduled for August 23rd, this will be an event
worth remembering! We're proudly offering...
*Dancing (of course!)
*A Silent Auction
*One Free Wednesday Night Lesson to all ticket buyers!
*...and the oft requested DANCE AUCTION!
This event is going to be more than that though. Our society's goal
is to not only teach about swing dancing, but to improve the public's
awareness of the swing culture, music, and history! The money raised
will be used to support local swing musicians by holding more
sponsored live band dances, bring in more out of town instructors for
workshops, and to help teach the city more about swing history. So
this event isn't just for our dancers, it's for EVERYONE! Bring your
non-dancer friends, bring your family! It's a chance to spread the
joy of Swing to Everyone in Central Texas!
