First time in a troupe? This one if for you!

Coached by Mohammad & Ashley

The swaying swarm is an intermediate Lindy Hop troupe ideal for dancers with little previous lindy hop performance experience. Coached by Mohammad and Ashley, this choreography based troupe focuses on equal parts performance and improvisation/social dance skills.

Boiled Legs :

Up Tempo Lindy hop/Charleston troupe

Coached by Mohammad & Ashley

Boiled Legs is an intermediate level fast lindy hop and charleston troupe ideal for dancers who are looking to take their fast dancing to the next level. In this choreography based troupe, we put equal emphasis on quality of performance and movement. We will also work on integrating all material learned in the routines into our social dance.

Practice time is Tuesdays at 8:35PM.

Cool Cats Coleslaw Collective :

Advanced Lindy hop troupe

Coached by Meghan & Adrian

This advanced Lindy Hop troupe represents all the values that are dear to us at Cat’s Corner Studio. We approach choreographic projects by putting forward social dancing, team spirit, challenges, and all without interfering with each other’s individuality. The creation process is important to us and we want to live this process with our dancers. Generally, we work on one to three routines during the year.
We identify group objectives that we want to work on and the events and parties where we would like to perform or compete. We try to give priority to the process of learning and to the joy of working together. We look for people who will easily integrate with our team and who will also bring their ideas and their presence. We prioritize the dancers who have a positive attitude towards challenges, who are autonomous and open minded.

Practice time is Thursdays at 8:35PM.

Monday Shaker Makers :

A Chorus Line troupe (for women, men and non binary individuals)

Coached by Kim, Andréanne and Megan from the Hotcha Mamas Chorus Line

In this project you will be introduced to the great tradition of the African American Chorus Lines of the swing era. You will be taken on a guided tour of an unknown but incredibly rich legacy of jazz variety show performances. You will learn some basic tap rhythms and footworks, watch a documentary, get inspired by a collection of old clips, learn an original chorus line choreography and work on your performance skills in order to present your hard work at a Cat’s Corner Friday night dance! Join the festivities and become a chorus dancer this season! No need to bring tap shoes.

Practice time is Mondays at 8:35PM.
