lindy Hop is an Afro-Euro-American Swing dance. It is a joyful and playful dance, with a solid, flowing style that closely reflects its music from the late 20's hot Jazz to the early 40's Big Bands.

Lindy Hop is a partnered dance, the men lead and thewomen follow...Believe it or not...the woman has no idea what the man is goingto do and is completelyimprovised!The man uses the pressure in their handto lead the woman intothe next move!

Lindy Hop...till you drop!

Lindy Hop was named after Charles Lindbergh's flight to Paris in 1927, when the newspaper headline read: "LINDY HOPS THE ATLANTIC"

1940's Lindy Hop

Lindy Hop is also known as the Jitterbug!

Fun fact:


This is what it looks like!

The dance has no "hop" in it. There is no hopping, bopping, or prancing in the dance.It is smooth and solid, there is a constant rhythmic 8-count "pulse" that you feel in your bones.
