Class & Dance Cancellations
Hop to the Beat has cancelled all upcoming dance and class activities. This includes the Uptown Swing dance scheduled for Saturday, March 28, plus the new Boston and Newton March/April class sessions. Local Lindy Hop/Swing activities are in a similar position. These have been difficult and sad decisions for our dance community to make, however, we are experiencing a situation where our actions can make a difference to the spread of COVID-19. Let’s be optimistic by acting now in the hopes before long we’ll get back to our dancing activities we cherish so much. Feel free to be in touch if you have any questions.

In normal times, Beantown Camp would be happening right now. It’s been difficult to get through June without thinking of all the preparations we’d have been immersed in, all the questions we’d be answering, and the sleep we’d not be getting. However, mostly we think of all the people we’d be seeing, the hopes we’d have for camp to go well, and the joy we always feel afterwards. Although we’re missing it all, it’s not feeling so weird as it did when we had to cancel in 2020. We’ve had plenty of time to get used to it.
With Beantown on the brain, it’s a good time to think back on our last one. It seems like so long ago! Such an amazing week in so many ways. We’re feeling grateful for how Beantown has evolved over all these years, going back to 1997! There’s been a lot to contemplate during the last year and a half, and we’ve been actively considering where we want to go for the future.
As for Hop to the Beat classes and dances, we know for sure we’ll not be back prior to the fall. However, no specific plans have yet been made. We’ve been considering the many issues with returning, and monitoring what’s going on.
We hope you’ve been doing well, and look forward to the time we can all get back to dancing together.
