One of the hottest dances on the scene!
As seen in the final of the BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing”
2009,“Strictly Dance Fever” in 2005/2006, performed in “Strictly Come Dancing” in 2008, danced at
Hangar Dances across the country, Lindyhop is the original fun and heart pumping form of Jive, danced to lively music ranging
from 1920’s Big Bands to current top action Swing Bands.
The earliest form of Swing/Jive/Rock ‘n’ Roll, it includes an eclectic
mixture of simple and flashy moves, many based on the dances of the roaring 20’s, with an injection of new steps and
styling from its resurgence in London, New York and Sweden in the 1980’s.
It has not only swept the nation, but is now also danced
all over the world by nationalities caught by the bug of this fun and crazy dance.
So, if you love those hip and swinging jazz tunes, this
is the dance to do.
We also teach “Collegiate Shag” classes - another fun
and enlivening dance style of the 1930’s era (perhaps overshadowed by the famous “Charleston”); danced to
up-tempo music ranging from traditional Dixieland style jazz to Swinging bands of all eras.
We have our own
authentic period clothing from the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s so we can offer our services for re-enactment
events, films & TV, schools & more!
