World Lindy Hop Day Celebrations (25-26th May)
26th May is World Lindy Hop Day and it honours the birthday of Frankie Manning, the Ambassador of Lindy hop, and possibly one of the most influential person in swing dance history. After the decline in popularity in the 1950s, there was a revival in the 1980s and there are Lindy Hop communities all around the world today.

The universal language of the Lindy Hop (aka swing dancing or jitterbug) features creative and exhilarating movements that allow partners to connect in a way that uplifts the spirit, promotes human connection, and develops generosity. It allows dancers to meet in a positive environment that supports the building of bridges on personal, community, and global levels.

World Lindy Hop Day encourages people from all different backgrounds to enjoy and share the many benefits of this joyous and enduring dance. We hope to celebrate the spirit of the dance this weekend with workshops for adults and kids alike, as well as a demo-lecture on the history and development of the dance and music through the century. We would also have parties with performances and a live band to celebrate the dance and all it embodies - a sense of community and connection, generosity and joy.

Swing by and get into the swing of things!
