The Honey Hoppers
Swing performance and training company by Sugarpush Vintage Dance
The Honey Hoppers are an amateur swing dance performance and training group lead by Holly France. The focus of this group is equal on both performance and training, we want to produce confident dancers on the stage, as well as on the social dance floor who have creativity whilst appreciating the history and roots of this dance . This is a very happy a positive group, they are guaranteed to bring a smile to the audience faces. The group is very supportive of each other, the members always help each other out along the way, we believe everyone has something they can bring to the group.
They have performed at The Lyllian Baylis Theatre, Sadlers Wells, Toynbee Arts Centre, Lylian Baylis, Laban, Zedels, Swing at Sway and One Great Day as well as many other charity and community events.
We are so happy to have been able to continue this year during the coronavirus pandemic working on solo jazz routines, fitness, strengthen and stretching. We live streamed the class via zoom and since August have also been in the studio, using a combination of zoom and in person.
We created a routine to Carry the cross for my boss by Lavern Baker, you can see the video here.
It has been a great time for us to focus on rhythm and musicality, tuning in to the music and letting that lead our movement
"I love being a Honey Hopper. Holly's classes include a great mix of working on technique and musicality, and learning fun, creative dance routines to put it all together. She has created a really supportive, collaborative dance community, which is amazing. The Honey Hoppers classes were my highlight through lockdown. I can't wait to perform with them as soon as we can!"
Sarah Charig, member since 2018
We have been fundraising during the pandemic for Clic Sargent, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, Groundswell and Inc Arts
