Like many new skills, dancing is best learned by doing! That said, we are doing our best to give you more opportunities to come out and dance, socialize and listen to great music.

Every Monday night at Hep Cat’s, we feature great swing music to keep you dancing all night! We alternate between bringing in live bands and and showing off our local DJ’s. We are a friendly bunch of people who love to see new faces out on a Monday night! The dancing starts at 9:00, with an introductory lesson at 8:30 included in the admission price to get you started (no partner or experience required). Dancing ends around 11 depending on how much fun we are having!
