Wednesday November 5th - December 3rd, 2014

Nov/Dec 2014 - Finals on Dec 3 to Live Music!

Event Details

Wednesday Night Hop presents its fourth annual Harvest Moon Jack & Jill Derby! This Lindy Hop competition is open to all amateur level competitors. If you are not sure whether you qualify, please ask.

What is a Jack and Jill contest?
In a Jack and Jill contest, competitors are randomly matched to their partners. Dancers are to show their social dance skills with their partner to a variety of music picked by the competition DJ. As such, it truly tests your skills as a social dancer. It's very friendly and extremely fun!

Our derby format will determine finalists in a series of prelims each week.

Contest registration begins at 9:15pm and closes at 9:50pm Wednesday November 5, November 12, and November 19 at Wednesday Night Hop. Contest spots are available on a first come, first served basis. To prevent time overruns for the contest, we will be limiting the number of participants each week. A limited number of spots will be reserved for in advance registration to help out dancers who have long distance commutes and cannot make it in person for the 9:15pm sign up time at Wednesday Night Hop's discretion.

Registration costs $3 for each preliminary round contest and is open to any eligible dancers, who haven't yet won a preliminary round.

How does the contest work?
The Harvest Moon Jack and Jill Swing Derby consists of 3 preliminary rounds and 1 final round.
