Lindyhop is a partner dance that originated in the 1920’s and 30’s in Harlem. It continued its popularity well into the 40’s during the Swing era and draws from earlier Charleston and Jazz steps and precedes jive and jitterbug. The Charleston routines on Strictly include several of these and are often choreographed by one of Claire & Peter’s dance teachers.
The name ‘Lindyhop’ comes from Charles Lindbergh flying solo across the Atlantic to Paris in 1927. It’s great fun and there’s no need to come to classes with a partner.
