A little about us...
As an informal society of dancers our mission is to create and maintain a fun and friendly dance community, where we welcome new people to the wonderful world of Lindy Hop and Swing Dance. We run classes, workshops and events, and promote social swing dancing in Scotland.
What is Lindy Hop?
Lindy Hop is a partnered dance born out of Harlem, New York by African-American dancers from the late 1920's through to the 1940's.
It was traditionally danced to Big Band Jazz music and evolved from dances such as the Charleston, tap dance and the breakaway.
