How can I connect to GTDA?
Who is in the club?
We are Georgia Tech students who love to dance. We volunteer our time to host monthly dances and workshops for Tech students and the Atlanta community.
Are you the GT Swing Club?
While we have been called this, we are officially the Georgia Tech Dance Association. Our main focus is Swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and on occasion Balboa.
How often do you have dances?
We hold dances once a month, usually the third Friday. Please see our calendar for the updated schedule.
Where are the dances held?
The Georgia Tech Student Center Ballroom, third floor. 350 Ferst Drive, Atlanta, GA 30313
What time does the monthly dance start?
The music starts playing at 9 PM. There is a complimentary lesson at 8 PM taught by professional instructors. The doors to the lesson close at 8:20pm and will reopen at 9pm for social dancing.
I am not a student. Can I still come to the dances?
Of course! Our dances are all-ages, non-smoking and no alcohol.
Is there a dress code?
The dress code is whatever you feel comfortable dancing in. We recommend comfortable shoes that allow movement. Swing dance is energetic and lively so you might feel more comfortable in breathable clothing. For dresses, we recommend a pair of shorts or leggings underneath due to the dresses swinging out.
I have a great band to suggest for a future dance. Whom do I contact?
We would love to hear your suggestions! Send us information at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into it.
When are workshops held?
We host workshops occasionally, but not on a regular basis. Please check our calendar for the schedule.
