Dance Road Trips!

Dance road trips are always a blast and this past weekend we joined our friends at Hop to the Beat Dance Studio of Boston, MA for their monthly Saturday dance. They are also the wonderful organizers of Beantown Dance Camp at Endicott College. Start checking out their website for more information and look for another blog post entirely dedicated to its awesomeness!

While in Boston on Saturday, Javi taught an Electric Slide class with lots of solo jazz movements to really spice this dance up and the live band brought lots of soul to the party. Totally got our group ready for Hart and Soul in September!

Local, regional and national dance events are a perfect reason to put your dance lessons into practice and we at Hartford Underground encourage you to seek these events in your area!

We look forward to traveling with you to many exciting dance events this year!
