A taste of Lindy Hop with Bethan Peters
A fun and vibrant introduction to the social partner dance form Lindy Hop. Come to kick, turn, bounce, mess around, swivel and swing your way into the autumn.
The Lindy Hop (or Lindy) is a partner dance that originated in 1920’s and 30’s Harlem, New York. The Dance itself consists of both 8 and 6 count steps and it includes footwork borrowed from the Charleston and Tap. The dance can be wild and spontaneous, with frenzied kicks and body movements, or it can be cool and sophisticated. The most important aspects of it are that it is danced with your partner, to the music, and that you enjoy it!
