Duke Ellington once said "It don't mean a thing if It ain't got that swing", so we better start swingin'. In this Valentine's day talk I hope to make you fall for Lindy Hop, a partnered social swing dance born in the 1920`s among the African-American community in the US which nowadays has a thriving community worldwide. After showing a bit of lindy's history and of how it works, I will tell how partnered dancing swept me off my feet some years ago and, hopefully, inspire you to try dancing one day.
