Free Lindy Hop Class at FCC! (Monday evenings beginning February 12): Join us as we learn what is considered America's national folk dance: Lindy hop. Lindy hop was pioneered by black teenagers in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s and is considered one of the oldest types of swing dance. Although this dance was created by black people, it's history is not very well known by the general public, including some dancers. In this four week series, you will not only learn basic movements and partner connection but also some history that will help you to better appreciate and enjoy the dance. Please note that it's not necessary to have a partner, dance shoes, or even rhythm to join. The rhythm comes later. It's only important to dress comfortably and wear shoes that facilitate sliding. This free class will take place on Monday evenings from 7-8:15pm in the Gym beginning February 12 through March 5. If you have any questions, please reach out to the dance instructor, our very own Bionca Davis.
