Swing Workshop

November 17 - 19, 2017


Karen & Dabney Hopkins

The Lindy Hopkins (Karen and Dabney) have been dancing together since 2009. They have won various contests and have performed all over the country. They are members of the Camp Hollywood Hall of Fame. They love to teach, and are excited to be a small part of the preservation of jazz and swing. They also run BadAZ Balboa, Swingdependance, and the Phoenix Lindy Exchange. Based out of Mesa, AZ, they run weekly venues and teach all levels of swing. Often they can be seen with their little cohort, Alice.


Our t-shirt sizes range from unisex XS to unisex XXL. Preordered t-shirts will be available for pickup at the door. We will also have a limited number for sale at the door for $18.
