What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is the original Swing Dance, developed in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s.  There are numerous other swing dances out there, but virtually all of them evolved out of the patterns and rhythms of the Lindy Hop.  The dance still has a large and active following throughout the world today!

Our friends at Yehoodi made a nice video history of the dance.
