Lindy Hop is a vernacular dance (street dance) that came out of Harlem New York City 1930s a mix of the popular Charleston and African dance. It evolved with the jazz music of that time. It is the very original form of swing dance and precursor to Hip Hop. Now days Lindy Hop has evolved drastically. It can be danced to smooth music, hip hop, or any music with 8 count beat.
