Lindy What? The Lindy Hop is an energetic and dynamic jazz dance which evolved in 1920s and 30s Harlem, New York. It is a fusion of various jazz dances which came before it, most notably tap, breakaway and Charleston. Once you get the Lindy bug, there’s no going back!
Lindy Hop is danced in couples (a pair consisting of a lead and a follow), although the couple need not consist of a man and a woman: both men and women may take the role of either lead or follow. It is a social dance, meaning that we do not have a fixed ‘dance partner’ like one often finds in other dances. Sounds like fun? You can do it!
If you want to see what Lindy Hop looks like, you can check out the demonstration dances by our amazing teachers at our birthday events in the videos section.
