Lindy was a hybrid of other popular dances of the day, but it’s mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway and Charleston, and was originally danced to the hot Jazz of the day (check out the MUSIC section!). After hitting Hollywood and drawing the attention of the world, it became massively popular across the globe up until the late 1940’s, when it hit a bit of a slump… Kingston Swing is the direct result of the revival of Lindy Hop that began in the 1980’s and is set to take over the world a second time… there are currently Lindy scenes spread across the planet, and international events right on your very doorstep! For more information, see the HISTORY section.

Kingston Swing is a Not For Profit group… our regular teachers teach on a voluntary basis, and this allows all the proceeds to go back into the group for events, social dances and parties, and for hiring respected International teachers for occasional workshops… the remainder goes towards our yearly International weekender event, “Hullzapoppin’!
