This year will be the 🎆4th🎉annual H.O.T. Heart of Texas Event. and we are grateful to the line dance community for helping us succeed and grow. We had record attendance in March 2020 (even with the approaching onslaught of covid 19) along with excellent instructors who introduced 34 brand new dances plus several innovative technique classes!!! We hope to surpass those numbers in 2021!!!
We hope to see you at H.O.T. Heart of Texas next year. Viva 2021!!!
