Hit That Jive is excited to present the Comp & Show Intensive on May 2nd, 2015! 

We are thrilled to welcome the talented Phil Bourassa from Toronto to teach with our very own Julie Kiraly. In this intensive they will focus on competition and show topics for partnered Lindy Hop, including advanced-level technique, cool tricks, and more. We are also excited to offer a Solo Jazz class, taught by the amazing Turlough Myers! And two elective classes: Air Steps and Cane Tricks!

The weekend will include a Friday night kick-off dance, classes all day Saturday, and a competition for workshop attendees at the Saturday evening dance! 
We will be teaming up with our friends at Nova Blues for "Hit That Nova" on the Saturday night, featuring BILLIE ZIZI, and two rooms, Blues and Swing, on the band breaks!

Optional classes (Air Steps and Cane Tricks) will be on Sunday afternoon.
