American-origin dance named after Ray Bolger, after Colonel Lindbergh’s first historic flight over the Atlantic, this popular style of Swing was performed “climbing upwards” as much as possible. Its most acrobatic versions were proposed in the ballrooms, of which the most famous was located in New York: the Savoy Ballroom of Harlem where Lindy hop became popular.
It is characterized by the typical kicks and whiplashes of the feet. It is a very energetic dance that still involves the whole body.
2/4 or 4/4, with the musical accent found on the second, or second and fourth measure bars. Lindy Hop has a general rhythm of “1, 2, 3 and 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8”.
