About Us:

Auburn University Swing Dance Association (AUSDA) is a chartered student non-profit organization at Auburn University. All our officers and instructors work on a volunteer basis, except for special requested lessons.

Our main dance is on Friday nights during school semesters. Both the lesson and the dance are free and typically run from 7-9 PM. The first hour is a lesson and the second hour a dance. A beginner lesson is offered, so any time is a good time to start! The intermediate lesson is at the same time and varies between different styles of dance. These styles include 6 or 8-count swing, Charleston, or a line dance (i.e. Shim Sham, Big Apple, or Tranky Doo).

Please join our email list (on the right side of the page) to receive weekly reminders of where and when our events are happening! Most of our meetings are held at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, but we meet elsewhere when Jan Dempsey is not available for us. Please check the calendar page to know for sure.

All ages are welcome to our events, but the environment is better suited for high school, college and older. Only Auburn University students can become voting members. Members are able to vote on the officers, bylaws, and the constitution.
