LindyGroove Lessons:  Join our fun live interactive virtual lessons while we all flatten the curve!

What is Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz & Charleston dancing?
Lindy Hop is the original swing dance. Born in Harlem as a street dance, it evolved from Solo Jazz & Charleston inspired by the jazz music of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Like jazz, Lindy Hop is a uniquely American art form. While we are in virtual mode we will focus on Charleston and Solo Jazz which share the Joy of Lindy Hop but without the need for a partner. 

Let’s get started!

Woo hoo! Some tips to get the most out of our virtual classes:
