Swing Lindy Hop

Swing - Lindy Hop
Swing is a group of related street dances that evolved from Lindy Hop. Swing is a partner dance, where the couple consists of a leader and follower, who share a connection.

In the late 1920's in Harlem Lindy Hop was breaking out wherever people were partying... But it wasn't until the opening of the Savoy Ballroom that Lindy Hop got its name and a home. At the Savoy the Lindy Hop got hotter and hotter, as people danced to the top Big Bands in the land. And it got better and better, as the popular Saturday night competitions pushed good dancers to greatness. New steps were born every day.

The styling got refined and was executed so well that the dance was a joy to watch as well as do. When it looked like it couldn't get any better, a young dancer named Frankie "Musclehead" Manning created the first airsteps in 1935, and the Lindy Hop soared.

Warning - listening to swing music is addictive!!! Here are some names to look out for at your local CD shop. You can get started with some good, cheap compilations... Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Billie Holliday, Glenn Miller, Cab Calloway, Loius Prima, Frank Sinatra, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue, Harry Connick Jnr.
