  The Tampa Bay Beach Boppers is a "Non-Profit" Dance Club founded in 1989. We incorporated in 1990 and now support various charities, both in and out of the Tampa Bay area.   The Tampa Bay Beach Boppers contribute one dollar per member in addition to other funds suggested by the Charities Committee and approved by the Board.  

The Tampa Bay Beach Boppers is a group of people who have an appreciation for "Beach Music" and enjoy various styles of dance which include shag, bop, east coast swing, west coast swing, jitterbug, etc. We offer dance lessons for members who have an interest in learning any of these dances. Most of our members belong to the 40+ "baby boomer" era, but we invite dancers of all ages to come join us and see who we are. TBBB also hosts major 3 day event - BEACH BOOGIE .  This event is held in August.   We also have dance events throughout the year at the American Legion every other Friday.

The Tampa Bay Beach Boppers club is a member of the American Bop Association and the Association of Carolina Shag Clubs.   TBBB is also affiliated with ASCAP and BMI. 

ASCAP - www.ascap.com - is a membership association of over 200,000 U.S. composers, songwriters, lyricists, and music publishers of every kind of music. Through agreements with affiliated international societies, ASCAP also represents hundreds of thousands of music creators worldwide. ASCAP is the only U.S. performing rights organization created and controlled by composers, songwriters and music publishers, with a Board of Directors elected by and from the membership.  ASCAP protects the rights of its members by licensing and distributing royalties for the non-dramatic public performances of their copyrighted works. ASCAP's licensees encompass all who want to perform copyrighted music publicly. ASCAP makes giving and obtaining permission to perform music simple for both creators and of music.


BMI - www.bmi.com - is an American performing rights organization that represents more than 300,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in all genres of music. The non-profit-making company, founded in 1939, collects license fees on behalf of those American creators it represents, as well as thousands of creators from around the world who chose BMI for representation in the United States. The license fees BMI collects for the "public performances" of its repertoire of more than 6.5 million compositions - including radio airplay, broadcast and cable television carriage, Internet and live and recorded performances by all other users of music - are then distributed as royalties to the writers, composers and copyright holders it represents.  BMI's roster of affiliated songwriters and composers is unsurpassed and includes outstanding creators in every style of musical composition: from pop songwriters to film and television composers; from classical composers to commercial jingle writers; from library music to musical theater composers; from jazz to hip-hop; from metal to meringue; classical to classic soul; from rock to reggae, and all the categories in between.
