History: Created in the ballrooms of Harlem, New York during the late 1920's and early 1930's, Lindy Hop is a fun, exciting dance for all ages. This energetic partner dance spread to California (developing also into a smoother style), and then the globe during World War II. Wildly popular, Lindy Hoppers danced to the sounds of Big Band Swing greats like Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Duke Ellington, eventually parenting new dances like West Coast Swing, Boogie Woogie, and Rock'n Roll.

How it works: One of the most nuanced styles of dancing, Lindy Hop is mainly comprised of six and eight count patterns; the definitive pattern being a "swing out." Highly based on improvisation, creative and analytical thinkers alike will find something to enjoy with Lindy Hop.

Why you should dance Lindy: If you like athletic dances and have the taste for an impressive feat of musical eye candy, Lindy Hop is also known for its stunning footwork, its ability to be danced at any tempo, as well as "air steps" or "aerials." Dance acrobatics such as "aerials" are often seen on modern movies, music videos, and TV commercials by Lindy Hop professionals.
