Lindy Hop is a fun, energetic partner dance developed in New York City in the 1930s. It is danced to swing music. In this course, we will practice movements, rhythms, and the leading-following connection typical to Lindy Hop. Because it is an old and creative dance, there are lots of different types of elements to Lindy Hop, so in this first introduction the focus will be on starting to dance and enjoying it; going through all the types of Lindy Hop movements won’t be possible.

Since Lindy Hop is a partner dance it is recommended (but not required) that you sign up in pairs. Your partner can be of the same or different sex as you; the main thing is that you agree which of you will practice as a follower and which as a leader in this course. We will rotate partners in the class, so signing up with a partner just means balancing the number of leaders and followers.

In the following videos, you can get some idea of what Lindy Hop is like and see some of the movements we will practice during the course. (Note, the first video is a choreographed performance by professional dancers, and the second is improvised dancing in a competition setting. In this course, we will focus primarily on social dancing, which contains many of the same elements, but is often a bit simpler).
