What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is the original Swing Dance, developed by the Black community in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s.  There are numerous other swing dances out there, but virtually all of them evolved out of the patterns and rhythms of the Lindy Hop.  The dance still has a large and active following throughout the world today!

You can learn more about the history of the dance from this Yehoodi film.
