4. Just For You!

Last week was rip roaring fun!  Student night with Clint Baker and the Cafe Borrone All Stars brought record numbers to Wednesday Night Hop.  We burst open at the seams and had to open up the whole dance floor to accommodate all of us out there!  Thanks for being a friendly crowd bringing baked goods and dancing with our guests from Leadership Public High School who learned how to lindy hop from Trevor and Audrey all week long.

This past Memorial Day weekend was the Frankie Manning Celebration in New York City.  We hope you were fortunate enough to join about 2000 lindy hoppers from all over the world to celebrate over there, but, if not the celebration is described on the website and there will be postings of the festivities on youtube and facebook throughout the week.

We have some AMAZING stuff coming up at Wednesday Night Hop in June including Lindy Prom, a Jack & Jill contest, some great classes, and opportunities to save some bucks! Please let us know if you ever have any questions or suggestions. You make Wednesday Night Hop the hottest dance party around. We'll see you out on the dance floor!

Jack & Jill Contest - June 24th
We are keeping the fun rolling with our Jack & Jill contest next month!
Dust off those competition shoes and get ready to roll!

This is a fun competition for all dancers. Jack & Jill competitions
originated over 40 years ago and are designed to showcase a competitor's
skills in spontaneous swing dancing and their ability to dance well with a
variety of partners to randomly selected music. It is the ultimate fun
lead/follow social dance contest that you, yes YOU, can enter.

Competitors enter individually and are randomly assigned to several
partners. Partner selection is luck of the draw. During the preliminaries,
couples will be judged in heats and will rotate partners as many times as
deemed necessary by the judges. During the final, each dancer will be peer judged individually as a leader or a follower. Contest music and the order in
which it is played will be selected by the DJ. The winners will receive a
fabulous prize!
