Lindy Hop Inspiration

These are the two videos that have most inspired my ideas about Lindy Hop. They both show that amazing Lindy ‘rubberband’ effect of constant separation and closure, amusing steps that fit the music, and the sense that we should be dancing to have fun with one another.

Dax Hock & Alice Mei (Dax Hock) (Alice Mei) dancing to “When I Grow Too Old To Dream” (Cats & the Fiddle) at ILHC 2008.

This is Tommy Blacharz and Max Pitruzella dancing to Sammy Davis Jr.’s version of “Love me or Leave Me.” They are paroding Kevin St. Laurent and Carla Heiney. (This was our wedding song.)
