What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy hop is an energetic and rhythmical dance that emerged in the African-American communities in Harlem, New York, during the late 1920’s. It became a dance craze with the popularisation of jazz music by artists like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and countless others.

In Lindy hop both partners are invited to improvise within the flow of the dance and to have an equal voice. Lindy Hop is now growing faster than ever all over the planet. Are you ready to hop into jazz and swing world and swing out with us?
