September venue annoucement!

Aug. 9, 2017

Exciting things are happening at Boston Lindy Hop, and we want to share some important news with you! Starting in September, we're moving our Tuesday and Thursday classes to a new, larger location - Church of Our Saviour at 25 Monmouth Street in Brookline. The Church is near both the C and D branches of the Green Line, and is close to stops on the 47 and CT bus lines. With the extra space, we're looking forward to running some additional programming (keep an eye out for more on that soon!). Featured below is a photo of the larger room we'll be using for class.

We've loved having you as members of the Boston swing dance community and appreciate your support. We hope you'll come get acquainted with our new location soon!
 
As always, thanks to all of you for making things like this possible.

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.
