Online Lindy Hop Dance Lesson Video: Lindy Hop - 16 Bar Forms
In this iDance lesson we explore the 16 bar song (eight 8-counts in each chorus). While less common than its 32 bar brother, there are many recognizable songs in the form. Careless Love, Milenburg Joys, I Love Pie I Love Cake, Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen, and Pallet On Your Floor are some good examples. Once you start to recognize the form you can more actively make your dancing fit not only the pulse and feel of the song but the structure. This will give your dancing the look and feel of choreography while maintaining the spontaneity of improvisation.
