Lindy Hop is a fun dance that anyone. It is probably one of the most highly-energetic and hyperactive dances you will see.
You might be wondering how this dance came about. Well, you have the Foxtrot, Charleston and Tap to thank for this culturally and historically significant dance. The Lindy Hop was known as the dance that bridged the gap between people. The latter somehow found a way to blend their jolly and entertaining frolics with the more formal American dance structure. Not to say that American dances were boring, but the dance became a lot more engaging and exciting. Eventually, this dance became a fusion of wild, quick-paced movements, frenzied kicks and American rhythm and dance structure.
Touted as the “granddaddy of swing”, many other fun styles of dance owe it to the Lindy Hop. To name a few, the Jitterbug, Jive, Boogie Woogie, and Shag, were all inspired and influenced by this dance. And the rest, well, it’s history.
If you still have no idea what a boatload of fun the Lindy Hop is, check out the famous Lindy Hop dance sequence by Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers in the 1940s film, “Hellzapoppin’”. That will for sure give you a perspective on how cool and enjoyable the Lindy Hop is. It will more than likely put a grin on your face too.
Now, don’t let the term “granddaddy of swing” turn you off. The Lindy Hop is not for the “old school” dancers and neither is it for the faint-hearted. All those wild and crazy energetic moves will absolutely wear you out. Don't for a second doubt that!
