New Format Monday Nights!

Jump Session

Startin 5/6 we will be changing the format of Hepkats to include the “Jump Session”. Because…. “the rhythm is jumpin’…..

What is the Jump Session?! It is a class format that encourages growth, development, and understanding of not only moves, but overall technique and movement and how to apply them to your dancing. This class is for EVERYONE!! Every month we take a subject within Lindy Hop, Balboa, Shag, or Charleston start from the bare bones beginning of the dance (7:30pm-8:00pm), then “stack” the class to challenge those people who arent new to the dance (8:00pm-9:00pm aka the “power hour”), after we have open dancing from 9pm-11pm! Cost is $10 for lesson and dance or $5 for just the dance.
