What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is an American dance style born in Harlem, New York during the 1920s. Hugely popular during the 1930s and 40s, Lindy Hop saw a huge revival in the 1980s that continues to thrive today. It is often seen as the “flagship” dance of authentic jazz and swing dances. The dance is infectiously fun both to do and watch, often characterized with lots of energy and improvisational qualities.
