Hit That Jive Productions

Hit That Jive Productions is a non-profit organization based in Edmonton, Alberta, that promotes social dancing, performance, and theatre. Our 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 in our city. HTJ was created by Read Fenton and Julie Kiraly, two local swing dancers with a passion for the arts and a drive to bring more dancing, theatre, and events to the city.

Though many of our projects and ideas are centered around a passion for vernacular jazz dances and music of the 1920's, 1930's, and 1940's, our work is not limited to the swing era. We 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. Our 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 in our great city.
