The Lindy is an old Swing style which continues to be an integral part of the American dance culture. Although both the music and the dance have evolved from the big band days, the nostalgic appeal of that era lives on in new music and this exciting retro style swing dance.

History

People who are interested in taking Etobicoke Lindy Hop lessons often want to know a bit about the history behind the dances they are studying. Originally named by Ray Bolger in tribute to Colonel Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic, this Swing style had as much “getting into the air” as possible. The more acrobatic versions were limited to ballrooms, of which the most famous was the New York’s Savoy in Harlem.

Popular musical groups of today have revived interest in the musical styles from the original Lindy Hop era and have fired the imagination and enthusiasm for a whole new generation of Lindy Hop dancers. However, the fiercely acrobatic style used for exhibitions is not necessary for today’s good dancers to enjoy this perennial favourite. The rhythmic patterns take place over two or more measures of music and can be danced to a variety of musical interpretations.
