Welcome To The New Huntsville Swing Dance Society Website!

Our mission is to preserve and promote the art form of social swing dancing. Whether you are a beginner or you have been dancing for years we have something for you!

Our new and improved website should streamline the process of finding the information you need quickly. If you are new and want to know where to take classes or if you have been dancing for awhile and you just want to know where the monthly dances are this is the right place for you!

Specters At The Speakeasy: What A Roaring Good Time!


The Huntsville Swing Dance society was overwhelmed and ecstatic at the amazing turnout we had for our October fundraiser, Specters at the Speakeasy.

With your help we raised over $1,700 that night toward our goal  of $3000 that we need to reach in order to replace and expand the current dance floor at The Flying Monkey and we couldn't have done it without your support!

As our thank you for your attendance and your support, we've uploaded all the images from the event's photo booth here to Facebook for online web use:  

Feel free to download them and use them however you like!  And we also have a link for downloading high res versions of the all the images for printing here:

And before I sign off I'd like to once again thank all our amazing sponsors for their generous donations to our amazing raffle where we gave away over $1000 in prizes!

Also I'd like to issue a special thank you to Danielle Beardsley, Marcus Thompson, Dana & Jared Austin, Paul Fryer, Cody Hall, Amanda Demmel, Nathan Trey, Tim McIntire and all our other amazing volunteers who without their help, time, energy and generous donations, this event would not have been possible!

Make sure to mark your calendars and come out next month on Nov 15th for our upcoming 1940s themed USO dance featuring Moondust Jazz Band!
