The Swing Cats hosted their eighth annual Fall Stomp on Nov. 2.
The event consisted of a variety of swing dances, accompanied by live music from the Jazz band. The Fall Stomp was open to students and faculty and included a free dance lesson beforehand.
“Swing Cats has been an integral part of my time here at ACU since freshman year,” said Raiden Sawyer, senior English major from Oklahoma City and president of Swing Cats.
Sawyer said the Fall Stomp is a great opportunity for the community to come together.
“We had a really good turn out of about 100 people and we had a lot of people who were engaging with the music and having a good time” Said Sawyer. “We really love dancing to live music and this is a great time for us to collaborate with the ACU Jazz band.”
Swing Cats is open to all students, despite dance experience. Beginners lessons take place in the SRWC and cost $1 per person.
“You can be an absolute beginner and learn something the very first time you come,” said Bennett. “People are welcome to come at any point in the semester and start learning.”
