We have been called this a couple of times before. However, officially we are the Georgia Tech Dance Association. While we encourage all types of dancing, our main focus is Swing, Lindy, and on occasion Balboa.

How often do you have dances?

We hold dances once a month. We try to schedule them for the second Friday, but sometimes they fall on an earlier or later Friday, or even on Saturday. Please see our Calendar for the most up to date schedule.

All the dances are held at the Georgia Tech Student Center Ballroom. Directions can be found on our Contact Us page.

Most guys usually wear a collared shirt and slacks and most girls usually where a casual dress or blouse/pants, but dress-code is whatever you feel comfortable dancing in. If they would let you into 7-11, then we’ll let you in. to our dance.

I have a great band to suggest for a future dance, who do I contact?
