Learn to Lindy Hop (a.k.a. Swing Dance)


In this brief introduction to Lindy Hop, (a.k.a. Swing Dance), Debra Ann Sylvia, with some help by local Mensan Steve Rider, will guide you through the basics of what has been called the United States' only original folk dance. Wear comfortable shoes; we do NOT recommend sneakers or similar "grippy" soles.
