The Wenatchee Valley College HepCats strive to share a love of swing dance and big band music by providing a friendly, wholesome atmosphere in which people of all ages can convene for a swingin\’ good time. Any and all are welcome and encouraged to come dance with us. No previous skill is needed, there is a lesson provided at every dance night. You don\’t need to bring a partner, just come and dance! WVC students and community members alike are invited to come add to the merriment that is swing dancing.
The HepCats have a lesson and social dance every Wednesday evening at the Wenatchee Valley Senior Activity Center on Maple Street in Wenatchee (1312 Maple St, Wenatchee WA 98801). The weekly lesson begins at 7:00pm, and is always a beginning level lesson. After that there is open social dancing from 8:00pm-10:00pm. Admission is $5.00 and includes the lesson as well as the dance.
Our dance style varies, but is mainly focused on the swing dancing made popular during the 1920s-1950s such as East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop (both are also known as jitterbug), among others.
Since swing dancing is such an awesome thing, the HepCats are hosting a weekend event with extra lessons from travelling instructors and a Saturday night dance to show off your stuff! Come join us at the Pressroom Theater (14 N Mission St, Wenatchee WA 98801) on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 10am and learn all you can at the 4-hour workshop. The instructors Michael \’Dargoff\’ Darigol and Brittany Johnson are amazing dancers and wonderful people, and we are excited to have them come to Wenatchee. After the workshop get dressed up and come show off what you learned at the Big Fall Quarter Dance. The dance kicks off at 7:00pm with a beginning lesson. Social dancing will begin at 8:00pm and won\’t stop until midnight.
Don\’t miss your chance to wow your friends on the dance floor to some rocking good swing music!
