Lindy Hop

Lindy Hop is a swing dance from New York, USA. The dance originated from Harlem during the 1920s and 30s, as a development of Charleston and other dances. Traditionally, Lindy Hop is danced to swing music. The tempo varies from very fast to very slow. The dance can be both spontaneous and choreographed. It is important that the dancers has a dynamic with each other and with the music. The dance is open for improvisation, where both the leader and follower can influence the dance.
