Lindy Hop is a style which can be danced to very fast music or relatively slow music.
Take a look at the video below - but don't be put off taking up this dance - these are experienced dancers.
This style is based on the Charleston dance.
It came from New York in the 1920's - it was a fusion of many dances.
I started to learn this style of dance at the same time I was learning Jive - it is quite difficult to learn both at the same time.
One of the basic moves in Lindy is the Swingout.
Some of the first airsteps of this dance were created by a dancer called Frankie Manning in 1935.
From there on in the style became even more popular.
Sometimes this style can require a lot of space as some of the moves are very flamboyant and you can improvise a lot with this type of dance.
Very experienced Lindy Hop dancers - going wild.
Now that's what I call Lindy with class.
