Title: Texas Tommy (Vintage Dance)
Texas Tommy is a very early swing dance form with a strong relationship to the eventual development of Lindy Hop. Its dancers used its open framework to incorporate so called "animal dances" such as the Grizzly Bear, Turkey Trot, and Bunny Hop. Significantly, this dance was perhaps the first to incorporate a "breakaway" into open position, which lead to the development of the Swingout, that core step of Lindy Hop. On its own, Texas Tommy is a raw and unabashedly upbeat dance that works at a wide variety of tempos.
