LINDY HOP: DANCING THROUGH GOOD AND BAD SINCE 1927
Lindy Hop: Dancing Through Good and Bad Since 1927
The Lindy Hop, the precursor of Boogie Woogie and Jive, was created by African-American dancers in the late 1920s in Harlem, New York City. Like the "Big Band" swing music to which it was danced, Lindy Hop embodied a joyful resistance to the negative forces of racial and ethnic discrimination and the Great Depression. Today Lindy Hop has spread across the entire globe. In this open workshop, Lucy (USA) will introduce a basic vocabulary of moves with which anyone can enjoy an unspoken, improvised and (most importantly!) swingin' conversation with a partner. Whether you’re a veteran ͞cool cat or a dance floor rookie, feel free to join in!
