Hop to the Beat
Tony and Aurelie established Hop to the Beat Dance Studio in 1995 and offered the first Lindy Hop classes in the Boston area. The original goal was to spread the joy of Lindy Hopping and that has not changed! What started as small Lindy Hop practices in the early days eventually grew into the popular monthly Uptown Swing dance in Brookline. Beantown Camp was started in 1997. Much has happened, evolved and been added over the years and HTTB celebrated its 21st anniversary last fall!
Uptown Swing Dance
Uptown Swing is a monthly Saturday dance hosted by Hop to the Beat at KI in Brookline. KI is a beautiful venue with the largest dance floor in New England. It is in a prime location, only a few blocks from Coolidge Corner. Live bands are featured each month for Lindy Hop, Swing, and Balboa. The atmosphere is fun and friendly and all levels are very welcome!
