The Hepcats believe that competition type activities (of course, friendly and fun competitions) are beneficial to helping improve any Lindy Hop/Balboa swing dancer. One of the best ways for an individual to take their Lindy Hop/Balboa swing dancing to the next level is to participate in a performance group, in jam circles, in a couples or jack & jill contest, etc. These activities get the competitive juices flowing and are often the catalyst for individual improvement.
The Hepcats also believe that competition type activities,particularily performance group activities, are one of the signs of a healthy and growing Lindy Hop/Balboa swing dance scene.
From 2008-2013, the Mike& Mary/the Hepcats sponsored numerous Lindy Hop performance group and competition type activities. Unfortunately, the current state of the swing dance scene in the Lexington/central KY area is not conducive for such activities. Could that change in the future? Who knows…….
