Lindy hop

Lindy hop is an American dance which was born in Harlem, New York City in the beginning of 20th century. It has evolved since then with the jazz music of that time. It was very popular during the Swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s. Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway, and Charleston. It is frequently described as a jazz dance and is a member of the swing dance family.

In its development, the Lindy hop combined elements of both partnered and solo dancing by using the movements and improvisation of African-American dances along with more formal rhythm structure and partner connection of European partner dances.

We will teach you Lindy hop technique and variations, train your rhythm feel and put much emphasis on couple dance connection (leading and following). We will prepare you to be able freely improvise and enjoy dancing Lindy Hop.
