About Lindy Hop
Considered the Grand Daddy of Swing, the Lindy Hop evolved in Harlem dancehalls such as the famous Savoy Ballroom in the late 1920's. Lindy Hop is a partner dance – but because it has its origins in street dance, it’s a lot more informal than ballroom dances like the waltz or the foxtrot. Later called the ‘Jitterbug,’ Lindy Hop exploded in popularity across the U.S. in the 1930-1950’s. Lindy Hop can be a fast or a slow dance and it can be danced to every kind of music from big band tunes to hip hop.
Lindy Hop at Lindy Jazz
Our courses at Lindy Jazz Club include Lindy Hop and Charleston. This will help you to learn the essential vocabulary to dance at all major swing events to a variety of musical speeds and styles. Swing dancers will mix Lindy Hop and Charleston moves interchangeably throughout a song as they dance. To be a proficient swing dancer, you will need a strong foundation of both Lindy Hop and Charleston techniques.
