Welcome to the home page of Mike & Mary Richardson, swing dance instructors & performers. We teach and promote the original swing dances of the 1930's & 40's big band swing era - Lindy Hop & Balboa - and the great music of that era! Keepin' it Real!
Well, things have changed since early March 2020. A lot of swing dance events have been cancelled or postponed. One of those being, very sadly, The All Balboa Weekend.
What will the Lindy Hop and Balboa swing dance community look like in the weeks and months ahead? Or large events in general?
We'll have to see what the future holds.
And check out the "What's the Scoop?" info noted below!
What's the scoop? No, not ice cream - but what's the scoop on swing dance events? Hyperbole is rampant and commonplace these days, especially in swing dance event promotion on FB, on event web sites, etc. Words like “awesome”, “amazing”, “fantastic”.... are so overused those type words have almost lost any real meaning. It can be a real challenge separating fact from fiction for swing dance events.
So Mike & Mary are going to provide info on (1) future swing dance events, and (2) provide a review of selected events we attended - - called - - What’s the Scoop? Click on this link to get the scoop!
The Hepcats are proud members of the National Fast Dance Association.
