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.
