We Love to Dance!

Who we are:

We are a non-profit dance organization directed toward the entertainment and fellowship of the members and devoted to the preservation of a great American dance style collectively known as "swing" but actually encompassing dozens of different dance styles and hundreds of variations. Our music is bop, shag, and rhythm and blues which will inspire you to dance to the rhythm of the beat. So come along and let us introduce you to the people, the dance, and the music collectively known as the Evansville River City Bop Club.

We enjoy visitors anytime…we encourage you to come dance with us.

Swing Fling IV - 2015


Things are starting to happen fast during this time of year.  First I want to remind everyone that our First Friday Dance is this Friday, Oct. 3rd.  Remember, we are in the front dance hall at the Eagles from 8:00 to 11:00.  As usual, there is NO CHARGE for Bop Club members and guests are welcome for only $5.00 per person.  We welcome all members of sister clubs of the ABA to attend as a member, free of charge.


Last month for our First Friday Dance, we had a back to school theme.  If you were there, you know how much fun it was to try to identify everyone from their school pictures.  There were 31 participants in the Back To School game and the best score for getting the matches right was 13, that’s just 42%.  It turned out that it was much tougher than anyone thought it would be, but it was a lot of fun.


During our weekly Wednesday dances this month, we are privileged to have great instructors this month, as we do every month.  Eva and Scott Key are our instructors for the first and second Wednesdays (the 1st & 8th) and Sue and Larry Stanley will be our instructors for the third and fourth Wednesdays (the 15th & 22nd).  Since we have 5 Wednesdays (29th) this month, there will be NO CLASSES on the 5th Wednesday.  Since this is so close to Halloween, we will be having a Halloween themed dance on Wednesday, the 29th.  You can come dressed up in your favorite costume (not required) and bring your favorite hors d’oeuvre.  If you do not normally come to the dances on Wednesdays, try to make it a point to come to the Wednesday dance on the 29th and celebrate Halloween on the dance floor.  As reminder to our members, the fee for the Wednesday dances is $2.00 per person for members and $5.00 per person for guests.


It is also time to start thinking about our Annual Christmas Dinner/Dance.  This year’s Dinner/Dance will take place on Friday, December 5th at the Eagles.  Starting this week, we are going to have a signup sheet for those wanting to attend the Christmas Dinner/Dance.  If you are unable to attend any dances prior to the Christmas Dinner/Dance and want to sign up for the Dinner Dance, PLEASE CALL, 812-499-0489 or respond with an Email to president@ercbopclub.com. All current members are encouraged to attend this Special Event which includes the Dance and a catered dinner by the Bauerhaus Restaurant/Catering.  This Special Event is FREE to all Current Bop Club Members.  Any members of any ABA sister club will pay $10.00 for the meal but the dance is FREE.  Guests are welcome at the cost of $20.00 per person for the Dinner/Dance and $10.00 per person for the Dance Only.  All ABA Sister Club Members & Guests must be paid by November 19 so we can include them in the meal count to the caterer.  There are NO REFUNDS after November 19 because we will have to pay for the meal whether the guest attends or not after that date.  The doors will open at 6:00pm, Dinner will be served at 7:00pm and Dancing will begin at 8:00pm and continue until 11:00pm.
