Lindy Hop dancing is performed to Swing Music, predominantly from the 1930's and 1940's.
The idea of adding this page to our site wasn't to chronicle the Swing Music era but rather to provide a brief guide to some of our favourite artists and songs that we've discovered while we've been dancing Lindy Hop.
