Saturday, February 21, 2015

Javier learned to feel the music in Atlanta in early 2005 and literally has not stopped dancing since that day. Now living in the Hartford area, he has founded Hartford Underground and travels to teach and compete at events around the country. While Balboa is his specialty, Lindy Hop and Charleston are his first loves. Has been a regular instructor at Beantown Camp and organizes the Hart & Soul Weekend. You won’t want to miss these fun workshops!

Registration Update (2/20/2015@1:15pm): The lead-follow balance has improved and is now at a good place. There are currently about 10 spaces available. Registration is once again open to both leads and follows and we accept an equal mix of each. Registration will be taken at the door if there are still spaces open.
