Hepcat Swing is a not-for-profit dance community that offers social dances and classes in a safe, inclusive environment. Our mission is to promote joy and connection through a love of all styles of swing and blues dance. We are proud to be a part of the vibrant local art and culture scene and our dancers are often seen out and about dancing, teaching, and performing at festivals and community events.

From our studio at 42 Erb Street East in Uptown Waterloo, we host lessons, weekly and monthly social dances, and special events. (Note: current activities are restricted due to COVID-19)

Fall Classes Postponed

Hi Hepcats,

In the document linked here are a couple of announcements from the Board regarding the fall session of classes and recent survey. Especially if you have registered for classes already, or were considering it, we would recommend that you read the announcement.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A about the topics in the announcement at the AGM. If you would like to send any questions ahead of time (they will still be answered on Sept 19), feel free to send it by Sept 15 to boardemail@hepcatswing.com.
