The Heart of Texas Whip Dance Club is a nonprofit organization focused on teaching and dancing contemporary West Coast Swing with traditional elements of Whip, a distinctive Texas style ideally suited to Rhythm and Blues. You can read all about Whip for both historical and contemporary information on the dance.
Regular weekly meetings and many special events are held on Thursday evenings at Ascension Lutheran Church, 6420 Hart Lane (see map). Heading south of Far West Blvd on the MoPac access road, turn right on Hart Lane shortly after the access road becomes two-way, where it's also called Balcones Dr. Up Hart Lane and just over the hill, turn left into the parking lot.
First time guests are always welcome to enjoy a Thursday evening of dancing and regular classes at no charge. See the syllabus for more information on our curriculum.
