Hit That Jive Productions is a non-profit organization based in Edmonton, Alberta, that promotes social dancing, performance, and theatre. Their mission is to foster a healthy and active community around these art forms, and to enable artists to grow their work by creating opportunities for events, workshops, and other projects.
Though many of their projects are centered around a passion for vernacular jazz dances and music of the 1920’s, 1930’s, and 1940’s, their work is not limited to the swing era. They believe in an interdisciplinary approach to projects, and as such support dancing, teaching, and performance in a variety of styles and genres, in addition to promoting swing dance and jazz music. Their goal is to bring the rich history and culture of the jazz-age decades to the local arts community and the people of Edmonton, and to support other forms of dance, theatre, and music.
We recognize we are situated on Treaty 6 Territory, traditional meeting land and home of many Indigenous Peoples including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis and Nakota Sioux Peoples.
