Dancing is a positive and healthy social activity and has been proven to improve PTSD, Alzheimers, depression, and general health and well-being.

Throughout the years, we have been proud to serve numerous veterans, active military, and Wounded Warriors. These are great examples of how swing dancing has been beneficial to overall health. 

The San Antonio Firefighters first organized in 1918 under the International Firefighters Association. This local was short lived as city officials passed an ordinance that made it illegal for firefighters to belong to a union. Ninety-two firefighters were fired in May of 1920. It was not until 1947, when a Civil Service law was introduced in the state legislature, that firefighters and police officers were provided the rights and benefits they deserved. The SA Firemen’s Welfare Association led by Chief L.E. Mason, obtained 10% of qualified voters’ signatures to call for an election to adopt the Civil Service law. In 1958, the Firefighters of San Antonio joined the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) as Local 624.

Today The San Antonio Professional Firefighters Banquet Hall is used for events throughout all of San Antonio. It is most commonly used for weddings, birthdays, quinceaneras, receptions, and as of recent, dance events! Logistical services are provided by staff members of the banquet hall each week as well as security! 

While we encourage all of our guests to consider getting the vaccine, we do not mandate them nor do we mandate masks.
