What is Lindy Hop then?

Category: faq

Lindy Hop is a dance based around an 8-count basic, and incorporates all of the elements of East Coast Swing, as well as some Charleston, Fox Trot and other ballroom dances.  It is a wholly American dance; its vernacular is dictated by the dances of the 1920s and 1930s which were in turn derived from the music of the time.  And just as jazz music was a fusion of Western symphonic music and African rhythms, so too is the dance.  The Lindy Hop is mixture of ballroom, Charleston and African dance.
