Preserved in iconic movies from the ‘30s and ’40, the Lindy Hop is often admired in clips and stills of people kicking their legs up on the dance floor. The instructors at T-Town Swing recapture these moves with weekly lessons on Thursday nights at the Urban Grace building. Lessons cover the basic and intermediate steps of the Lindy Hop, expanding on the six-count dance moves with triple steps and eight-count steps.
An eternal student, T-Town founder Kelly Edmonston has been studying jazz, Lindy Hop, and blues dancing for the last 12 years. Harnessing her enthusiasm, she now shares the joy she’s experienced through dance with students in a fun, no-pressure setting. Joined by fellow dancer and musician Kevin Buster, she delves into the Lindy Hop style—which reigned as the king of swing dancing in the 1930s and ‘40s, made popular by King Kong’s light-footed steps atop the Empire State Building—along with other throwback-dance styles. Their weekly lessons are always followed by a social dance backed by a rotating cast of live DJs churning out swing beats.
