Lindy Hop (or Swing Dance as it is sometimes known), is a partner dance originating in the late 1920s Jazz Era. In the most part developed in ballrooms across the USA - notably at The Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, New York. Its popularity peaked in the mid-1940s and was featured often as a speciality act in many Hollywood movies such as Hellzapoppin'. Lindy Hop continues to be enjoyed socially throughout the world.  Most famous dancers: George Snowdon, Norma Miller, Frankie Manning Willa-Mae Ricker.
