About Boston Lindy Hop

Boston Lindy Hop promotes swing dancing in Boston by teaching swing dance classes for all levels. You can learn authentic, vintage swing dance forms such as: Lindy Hop, Charleston, Vernacular Jazz, and more!

Our six-week long beginner series classes start almost every month—see the schedule for the latest classes that are available to you.

What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is the original Swing Dance, developed by the Black community 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!

You can learn more about the history of the dance from this Yehoodi film.
