Swing In The Streets – Free Public Event Coming To Downtown Nacogdoches
Swing dancing is making another comeback like in the 90's. Think of a swing revival happening right here.
Nac Swing Dance is a community of people dedicated to promoting swing dancing in Nacogdoches, Texas. They have local classes, workshops, exchanges, and live band performances.
Swing In The Streets is Saturday, September 18th, 2021 from 7:30pm - 10:30pm. Everything will be centered on the square in Downtown Nacogdoches.
Live Music To Dance To
An evening of swing dancing is never complete without a live band. Old Town Brass Band, a local New Orleans-style swing band, will be there to perform.
Come to dance, enjoy the music, or both. If you work up a sweat refreshments will be for sale from Stone House Kitchen.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information about swing dancing you can find Nac Swing Dance on facebook.
