Herky Meredith is said to be "all about dancing".
In the early 1980’s there were few places to dance in Louisville. Herky, who had been involved in dance since and early age, of met with a small group of friends to dance. Eventually this group found a nice little place called Studebaker’s. Herky, with a little help from his dance friends, helped found the Derby City Bop. Herky taught dance to many people who found this little dance club which would eventually grow to be one of the largest Bop style dance clubs in the country.
After a severe accident, in which he was unable to dance for four years, Herky finally made it back to the dance floor. He has served as a Vice President of Derby City bop and often traveled around the South spreading his love of dancing.
Derby City Bop awarded Herky a lifetime membership in 2005.
