Swing dance classes
Lindy Hop is an american dance originated in the ballrooms of Harlem in NYC in the late 1920‘s . The dance itself consists of both 8 and 6 count steps and it includes footwork borrowed from the Charleston and Tap. It is an unabashedly joyful, with a solid, flowing style that closely reflects its music — from the late 20’s hot Jazz to the early 40’s Big Bands.
The dance evolved along with the new swing music, based on earlier dances such as the Charleston and the Black Bottom, by black people in Harlem.
It was the first dance that both black and white people danced together and until today it still unites all different kinds of people .
You can find big Swing dance communities all over the world, where people enjoy the dance, the music and spirit of swing. It is an incredible energetic activity, happy and playful, with lots of freedom and room for creativity. Everything is about flowing with the music and improvisation.
