Hop Potato 2015

Monday, 16th March, 2015

Last weekend took us back up to Hop Potato, an event run by the students of Aberdeen University Swing Dance Society, at Aberdeen University. It was our 3rd time, at Hop Potato, following a two year break, where the teachers, this year were Joseph & Charlotte (UK), Chris Harm (AU) and Giedre (LT), who made a great fun team.

Dancers, Students and Alumini came from all over Scotland, for 2 days of workshop, plus 3 nights of social dancing with live music, followed by Blues parties each night.. We had a great time with the students, who were amazing, as we could see the transformation, as their dancing and technique developed over the weekend.
