Lindy is the original swing dance that emerged in Harlem during the 1930's and 40's. The acrobatic version, which features aerial steps and fast footwork, was developed and performed by Frankie Manning and Whitey's Lindy Hoppers and seen in several movies of the period.
Our focus in classes at The Avalon is on a smooth social dance style with an improvisational element. Lead/follow technique and repertoire are emphasized.

We offer five levels of Lindy, as well as specialty classes such as: Charlestons, Partnering Technique and Performance.
