We probably are not agile enough to do the Lindy Hop, but when we watch people performing this dance, we can't help but think how unbelievable the energy and acrobatics are.
Born in the African-American communities in Harlem, New York City, the Lindy Hop was very popular (along with jazz) during the swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s. The famed Savoy Ballroom in New York City, known for hosting thousands of dancers per year and was known as "the home of happy feet," was host to those who loved the Lindy Hop. In fact, African American dancers performed the Lindy Hop there for the first time in 1928.
According to legend, the term Lindy Hop was inspired by aviator Charles Lindbergh, who 'hopped' over the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, giving rise to the dance style. Lindy Hop emerged from several distinct dancing styles, including the Texas Tommy, hop, tap, the breakaway, and the 1920s Charleston. Coupled with the lively jazz scene of that time and feeding off its quick beats, the Lindy Hop dances were full of boundless energy. It quickly gained widespread acceptance and evolved into creative moves that involved aerials and amazing lifts.
