What is
Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop, the most famous swing dance, is an African-American jazz dance born in Harlem, New York City in 1928. It is primarily a partnered social dance, but includes elements of solo dancing, performances and competition.

Lindy Hop evolved from existing swing dances including Charleston, Breakaway, tap and jazz and innovated captivating air steps. Lindy Hop soon began being featured in shows at the famous Cotton Club, world wide tours, and films like A Day at the Races and Hellzapoppin’.
