Lindyhop, Old Jazz & Swing Dance


Recommended Posts

One of the must fun dances I find, whether solo or with a partner. I learned quite a bit of this style and have more of a natural affinity for this type of movement.  The varient of style I like the most is 1930s Lindyhop. It can be done to vintage style music, but it can go just as well to more modern music too if you adapt to the rhythm.

 

The style is very "feline" in nature, it has so many great moves, as well as silly ones! It's just overall great fun.

 

A few great clips here

Hi, Brother Matthew...thank you for posting those dance videos. I'm in my 70s and was taught how to jitterbug by my mother when I was  6 years old back in the early 1950s. She would be in the kitchen with the radio playing. Rock and roll was just developing. She liked that type of music (me, too). She'd say, "Come on, Jimmy, let's jitterbug." I picked it up, and it's been my dance of choice ever since. I've been married to a nonJW since 1967...she doesn't dance but has no qualms about my dancing. I don't dance much these day, though, because there are no suitable dance venues within 100 miles of where we live.
