This was a new experience for me, as I don’t get to dance with the Hepcats much. Because I have a crazy long winter break, I decided I would go crash the last lesson and dance of the quarter. So I got all dolled up and marched myself down to Clifton. Instead of the usual conglomerate of dancers in the middle of Tangeman University Center, (which is their student center (which is actually pretty cool, you should go check it out if you’re in town)), the group had booked the back room of the Rohs (pronounced “rose”) Street Cafe. It’s a little quirky place about a couple of blocks off campus. I’m definitely going to have to make this place a stop on any further adventures downtown.
There was a great turn out at the dance, and an unusual phenomenon where the leads greatly outnumbered the follows. It was great to be on the flip side of things for a change.
We danced the night away with the CCM Jazz Band playing for us. Some of their songs, may have been a bit long, but these guys are the epitome of CCM musicians. They were great!
So, if you’re ever in the neighborhood and you’re looking for some great dancing, be sure to check out the UC Hepcats. They meet on Mondays at 7pm in TUC. Be sure to tell them I say “hi” if you go!
