Post  RUCKER11 on Fri Jun 11, 2010 12:19 am

Most of us want to learn Latin dance or ballroom dance. How about learning something different? How about learning a sassy dance that is as exciting as its history? Lindy Hop Dance NYC is one dance form that created a stir among the people of America during the 1920s. The Savoy Ballroom was the first ballroom that had no biasness towards any race. Everybody was free to dance and mix with each other, it was the first ballroom to introduce the Lindy Hop to the New Yorkers.

Lindy Hop was created in Harlem, New York during the 1920s and continued to rule the hearts of people and ballrooms till the 1940s. This dance form also marked the entry of airlift movements into the dance floor. It was during a competition that the first lift movement was done. It left most of the spectators astonished. Herbert White handpicked the best dancers from these dance competitions and ballrooms and went on to form a dance group known as Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers. This dance group showcased this dance style in many movies like A Day At The Races and Hellzapoppin, which released in 1937 and 1941, respectively.

Nowadays, there are very few dance schools and academies that teach this dance style but in New York City finding a dance studio that teaches this dance form won’t be such a task. So, go and enroll for this dance style and get all your moves right. Elders as well as youngsters will surely be surprised to see the beauty of Lindy Hop through your dance steps.
