Lindy Hop Lessons

What is Lindy Hop?

Monday I posted about a Swing lesson and dance in Laramie.  Swing is an umbrella term for a style of dance that began in the 1920’s and grew more popular in the 1930’s and 1940’s.  There are different kinds of Swing dance, one of which is called Lindy Hop.

Lindy Hop is one of the most popular kind of Swing dance.  It is very fast-paced, more difficult than the basic swing, and has infinite variations once you learn the basics of it.  Click on the video below to see an example of Lindy Hop.

I Want To Learn!

Well then, you’re in luck!  Local Lindy Hopper, Kevin Bretting, is teaching a progressive series of classes in Lindy Hop.  The classes are every Saturday at the Laramie Recreation Center.  Kevin will begin with the basics and progress through more advanced moves, building more skills with each lesson.  The classes begin this Saturday, September 21 and go through November 9th.
