Swing Era Lindy Hoppers
Roaring 20s & Gatsby Era
Line Dances at the Pier
Line Dance Challenge
Lindyland (still under construction) will be a source for all things “Swing,” providing a bit of history on the dances that emerged and were born in America during the 1920s – 1950s. We also peek into how these music styles and dances evolved to enthusiastic cult like following as seen by the level and multitude of competitions and festivals hosted across the planet often drawing thousands of participants per event.
Our resources will include collections of present day dancers, those that were the innovators and the creators of yesteryear and everything in between. We will also have links to online instruction as well as a listing of local classes and workshops.
When completed, you will find written descriptions & video samples of every swing dance imaginable such as The Charleston, The Balboa, The Lindy Hop, The Collegiate Shag, The Carolina Shag, The St. Louis Shag, The Jitterbug, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, and more
There will be a section dedicated to line dances and solo jazz with written descriptions & video samples. We also include the Early Social Jazz Dances from Tap to Vaudeville that set the stage for much of the partner dance and solo jazz of today. It’s all in the plans.

PHASE TWO compliling more SWING LINE DANCES but also reaching beyond the boundaries of Swing to areas like SOUL, HUSTLE, LATIN and more (FALL 2020)
