About Us

Who is GTDA?

The Georgia Tech Dance Association (GTDA) is an entirely student-run organization. Our members, volunteers, and officers draw from the Tech community.

Formed in 1999, GTDA gives students, the Atlanta community, and many others a place to swing dance! Our spacious 5,000 sq ft dance floor is conveniently located in Midtown, where it is within walking distance for all on-campus Georgia Tech students.

We hope to see you at our next monthly dance! For more places to practice swing dancing, check out More Events.

What GTDA offers:

Dancing, good music, and having a good time!
– We offer a smoke-free, alcohol-free environment.
– We are an all-ages facility, so even if you’re 15 or over 65, you will enjoy yourself at our events.
