Well, that’s the official definition of what Derby City Bop is, but it’s more than that. Derby City Bop is a collection of people spanning all age groups, who come together to enjoy one another’s company. It’s people helping to preserve a great American dance style collectively known as “Swing” but actually encompassing dozens of different dance styles and hundreds of variations.
