Bham Hop

Bham Hop

B’ham Hop is a swing dance community in Bellingham, Washington. At B’ham Hop, we believe that community is built by learning, playing, and celebrating together. We actively create a learning environment where collaboration and respect are central to the process. Every Tuesday night we host a swing dance, with a class for all skill levels at 6:30pm followed by a dance. We invite live bands to play at dances, and do community outreach through performance and practice groups.

Come learn and enjoy the social dancing of Scotland. It is a lot like contra dancing but with lively Scottish music and unique steps and figures. Everyone welcome! Our mission is to preserve the lively and important history of Scottish Country Dancing through practice, performance and camaraderie.

TangoLife

TangoLife

For all TangoLife classes except semi-private, you may drop-in (according to your level), but an RSVP by email is greatly appreciated, especially if you are not already a regular.

Private tango lessons are still a steal at $40/hr or $50 for 1.5 hour for one or two people (lead or follow). Typically we accomplish a month of development in one session.
